ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (AP) - A judge has denied a probation release request from a former Vermont woman who served prison time for her role in the killing of her stepmother in 2000.
Tashia Beer was accused of persuading her foster brother, Scott Favreau, to shoot Vicki Campbell-Beer of Lyndon. Beer was 14 at the time.
Favreau pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 17 years to life. She pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was imprisoned six years before being placed on probation.
Now 28 and married and living in Las Vegas, she asked to be released from probation. She said she is a changed person who works and supports two children.
The Caledonian Record reports Judge Mary Miles Teachout said Wednesday she not satisfied that enough of her experience has been spent on probation.
