More freedom sought for alleged Colorado cannibal

ALAMOSA, Colorado ” The Colorado state mental hospital has asked a judge to grant more freedom to a woman accused of killing, dismembering and cannibalizing her former boyfriend.

The Colorado Mental Health Institute wants to grant conditional release to 54-year-old Jane Lynn Woodry. A judge has scheduled a Jan. 2 hearing on the request.

Woodry, who changed her name from Carolyn Gloria Blanton in 1999, was found not guilty by reason of insanity after the 1993 slaying of 51-year-old Peter Green of Alamosa.

She was committed to the state hospital but had gradually won more freedom since then.

In 2005, Alamosa County District Judge Pattie Swift allowed her to move into an apartment off the state hospital campus in Pueblo.
