Woman convicted of killing ex-lovers wife has been paroled

Posted: Updated:

A woman convicted of killing her ex-lover's wife in Colorado Springs has been paroled after being sentenced to life in prison. The story made national headlines in after the murder in 1990. 

Jennifer Reali was convicted in the shooting death of Dianne Hood in 1992. Reali was dressed in camoflauge, ambushed and gunned down Hood as she left a Lupus support group meeting in Colorado Springs.

Investigators say Reali was having an affair with Hood's husband Brian, at the time. Reali was sentenced to life in prison, but her sentence was commuted by then Governor Bill Ritter. That meaning her conviction would stand, but she would be eligible for parole sooner. 

Her parole was denied in 2011, but with less than two years left on her sentence at the time, she was moved to a Denver halfway house. 

Sooner is now, according to the Department of Corrections and the State Patrol Board, Reali who was dubbed as the 'fatal attraction' killer has been paroled and will be released from the halfway house, December 12.
