State halts release of convicted murderer Laurie Kellogg

Seneca County woman was found guilty of killing her husband

CAYUGA, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - The New York State Department of Corrections tells NewsChannel 9 that the state parole board has decided to appeal a judge's ruling to release a woman convicted of murder 26 years ago.

A judge in Manhattan ordered Laurie Kellogg's release back in March.

The state had 30 days to file an appeal or release Kellogg.

Kellogg, with a gang of teenaged friends, conspired to kill her husband, Bruce, at their cottage on Cayuga Lake.

Kellogg claimed that she had been abused by her 33-year-old husband, who she married as a teen.

She was sentenced to 25 years to life for his murder.

The Supreme Court judge said in March that Kellogg had been a model inmate and has paid her debt to society.

He said that releasing her now would save taxpayers over $100,000.
