A jury has dismissed granting early parole to a woman who killed her husband in Killaloe.

Cherrylle Dell was convicted in the poisoning death of her estranged husband Scott Dell in 1995 and is serving a life sentence. She had hoped to be granted early parole under the Faint Hope Clause. However, the 12 member jury did not find Dell’s appeal convincing and denied her parole. During her time on the stand, she admitted killing her husband to the jury. Dell is now not 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.
