A woman convicted of luring her ex-boyfriend to his death could be allowed full parole after serving less than two years of her almost seven-year sentence.

Amanda Greene pleaded guilty to manslaughter in July 2011 in the death of 18-year-old Dillon Jewett.

Greene was released on day parole in January. The Parole Board of Canada found no problems with her temporary releases, so is now recommending a panel hearing into granting Greene full parole.

Full parole allows offenders to serve part of their sentence in the community.

Jewett 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 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.

As part of her parole, Greene must abstain from drugs and report all intimate relationships with men to her parole supervisor.
 

Corrections

  • A previous version of this story indicated Amanda Greene had been granted full parole. In fact, there still needs to be a panel hearing on the subject.
