BRIDGEWATER, N.S. — “Mommy, don’t,” were the last words Karissa Boudreau spoke as her mother strangled her to death with a piece of twine in the woods outside of Hebbville, N.S.

Her words were read in court Friday morning from an agreed upon statement of facts as Penny Boudreau, 34, pleaded guilty to the second-degree murder of her 12-year-old daughter.

The woman wiped away tears as she was led away from Nova Scotia Supreme Court in Bridgewater, N.S. Boudreau was sentenced to life in prison with no parole for 20 years….(Full Story Sorry, that link no longer functions. Here is another article that reports the circumstances of the case.)

It rarely (if ever) happens that a woman will be left with a chance to ask for parole for that long.  We’ll have to wait and see what will happen.  The wait is likely not that long.
