Alberta girl who killed family granted full release into community Add to ...

A southern Alberta girl convicted in the murder of her parents and brother when she was 12 has been granted another bit of freedom.

The girl, who is now 17, will no longer have to report to a halfway house at night.

Justice Scott Brooker made the ruling at a hearing in Medicine Hat into the teen's rehabilitation.

She must still abide by 13 conditions, which include a curfew, continued treatment and a ban on drug use.

She must also stay in Alberta and either work or attend school.

The girl was convicted along with her boyfriend Jeremy Steinke of murdering her family in April 2006 because her parents were displeased with the relationship.

She is to be fully released under an intensive reintegration program when she turns 22.

Mr. Steinke is serving a life sentence with no parole eligibility for 25 years.
