Kan. inmate serving life gets parole

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Parole has been granted to a woman who’s served more than 30 years in prison for her role in the murder of a Wichita restaurant manager.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1fjl1uo ) 55-year-old Regina Baldwin is one of two women convicted of first-degree murder in the 1983 death of Julie Rosenhamer.

Kansas Department of Corrections spokesman Jeremy Barclay says the Kansas Prisoner Review Board granted the parole Tuesday and Baldwin will be eligible for release after Feb. 1.

Wichita police say Rosenhamer and two other employees were preparing to close the Church’s Fried Chicken on May 3, 1983, when Baldwin and Yvonne Pink came into the restaurant armed with guns and Rosenhamer was killed. Both Baldwin and Pink were given life prison sentences.

Pink will be eligible for parole next year.
