One of Belgium's most despised criminals, the accomplice and former wife of a pedophile and child killer who let two of his victims starve to death, left prison for a convent after serving barely half her 30-year sentence.

The nation's highest court on Tuesday approved a ruling that Michelle Martin can leave prison early despite her part in the mid-1990s kidnappings, rapes and killings by her then-husband, Marc Dutroux.

Prison spokesman Laurent Sempot said Martin left prison in an unmarked vehicle late Tuesday.

Paul Marchal, whose daughter An was one of Dutroux's victims, says "there is only one word for this. This is simply absurd."
