Twilight Zone, or Stupid Jailors Zone?

SOFIA (Reuters) – A Bulgarian woman who killed her son was released from prison because of terminal cancer. She then went home and killed her husband, police said Tuesday.

The 57-year-old was sentenced to 15 years in jail for killing her 29-year-old son with a garden hoe in April 2005 while he was sleeping.

Last month, authorities judged her to be in the final stages of cancer and let her go home, where she stabbed her husband in the throat with a knife.

“It was established she was in the last stage of cancer, she had it all over her body,” said a spokeswoman for the Bourgas regional police.

“They presumed she was feeling bad and she would treat herself and rest. But nothing of the kind. She got aggressive and … she killed her husband.”

The woman, from a village in eastern Bulgaria, has been taken into custody again and is awaiting a new trial.

“She threatened that, if she is released again, she will kill her second son as well,” the police spokeswoman said.

“The whole case is like something from the twilight zone.”

1. 15 years in prison for murdering your sleeping son with a garden hoe?

2. Released because she was feeling bad?

3. A new trial? Schedule that for 6 months from now and be done with it.
