It is reported that 52-year old Lawrencia "Bamni" Bembenek is "near death" as a result of "Hepatitis C and liver failure" and possibly cancer. In 1982, Bembenek, a former Milwaukee Police, murdered her then-husband's ex-wife. She then escaped from Taycheedah Correctional Institution, however, and secured a second trial, pleading "no contest." Bembenek received credit for time served and was released in 1992. But she says she was "framed." So, the Governor's Pardon Advisory Board will meet to decide her "legal fate." See story here.
