KOMU reports Gov. Matt Blunt has commuted the sentences of Stacey Lannert and Charity Carey. Blunt's office says both women suffered sexual and physical abuse before they took action against the men who caused the abuse. Lannert murdered her own father in 1999, when she was only 18 years old. Carey murdered her husband in 2000. The commutations allow both women to apply for parole. See story here.
