PAROLE BOARD RECOMMENDS GRISWOLD WOMANS SENTENCE NOT BE COMMUTED
(DES MOINES) A woman who pled down to 45 years in prison for intentionally setting fire to her Griswold home, killing two of her siblings, had her commutation hearing in front of the Iowa Board of Parole this morning.
“I know it was wrong and I know that they died and I just want maybe for you to be able to look at my sentence before my mandatory is up and maybe give me a chance before then,” said Tracey Dyess. “I’m not saying I want out now, but maybe before my mandatory is up.”
The Board unanimously recommended that her sentence NOT be commuted. That recommendation will now be sent to the Governor’s office for his final decision.
