A woman who poisoned her husband in Killaloe is opting for parole.
Cherrylle Dell was convicted in the poisoning death of her estranged husband Scott Dell in 1995 and is serving a life sentence. Dell appeared before a 12 member jury in Pembroke last week. During the appearance, she admitted responsibility in the death of her husband. The appearance is a bid for early parole under the Faint Hope Clause. If the bid fails, Dell will not be eligible for Parole until 2022. Dell had tried for early parole earlier this year but failed in that attempt.
The Faint Hope Clause was ended in 2010, but those convicted before 2011 may still use the law. The law was abolished by Steven Harper’s Conservative Government.
