Cannibalism suspect ‘deeply ashamed’ of a horrible thing

ALAMOSA, Colo. ” An attorney for a woman accused of killing and cannibalizing her ex-boyfriend says she’s ashamed for doing a “horrible thing.”

Jane Lynn Woodry was found not guilty by reason of insanity after the 1993 slaying of Peter Green of Alamosa and was committed to the Colorado Mental Health Institute in Pueblo.

She was in court last week seeking conditional release. A judge hasn’t issued a ruling.

Woodry’s attorney, Bill Martinez, quoted Woodry as saying, “I’m deeply ashamed. The person who killed Peter Green is not me.”

Psychiatrist Elissa Ball testified that Woodry is unlikely to do anything violent if she stays on medication.

Ball says Woodry would still to get medication and her home would be subject to searches if she gets conditional release.
