Amanda Greene, convicted of manslaughter, released from prison
Greene was convicted in 2012 of luring her ex-boyfriend to his death
A woman convicted of luring her ex-boyfriend to his death is being released from prison after serving less than two years of her seven-year sentence.
Amanda Greene pleaded guilty to manslaughter in July 2011 in the death of 18-year-old Dillon Jewett.
Now, the Parole Board of Canada has agreed to release Greene to a halfway house. She has been assessed as a low risk to reoffend.
Jewett, 18, was found dead in a quarry near East Uniacke on Oct. 3, 2010 — 13 months after his relationship with Amanda Greene ended.
Greene lured him to the quarry, where her new boyfriend, Kyle Gowen, and his brother waited to ambush him.
Gowen admitted to shooting Jewett in the head, first accidentally and then twice more. He is serving a life sentence for second-degree murder.
Greene claims she was abused by Jewett while they dated, and the attack was an act of revenge.
Steven Gowen, Kyle Gowan's 21-year-old brother, pleaded guilty to accessory to murder after the fact. He was sentenced to three years in prison, minus eight months for time served.
Greene must abstain from drugs and report all intimate relationships with men to her parole supervisor.
