A judge in Alamosa says a woman accused of killing and cannibalizing her boyfriend in 1993, will be allowed to leave a state mental hospital as long as she continues to take her medication and participate in therapy.
Psychiatrists at the Colorado Mental Health Institute in Pueblo had recommended the release of 51 year old Jane Lynn Woodry, who changed her name from Carolyn Gloria Blanton in 1999. Prosecutors opposed the request and sought independent mental-health evaluations.
Woodry had pleaded innocent by reason of insanity to killing artist Peter Michael Greene. Investigators had testified that Green was last seen alive in 1993 and that they found "bite-sized chunks of human flesh" in a cooking pot at Woodry's home.
