STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) — A former Sacramento legal secretary convicted of poisoning her boss in 2001, then stashing his body, is set to be released from prison.
Sarah Dutra was a 21-year-old art student at California State University, Sacramento, when she befriended the wife of her boss, attorney Larry McNabney. Prosecutors say Dutra and Laren Sims hatched a plot to poison McNabney with a horse tranquilizer so they could steal money from his practice.
Authorities arrested Sims after the body was found months later. But she hanged herself in jail and left a note implicating Dutra.
Dutra initially was charged with capital murder, but a jury ultimately found her guilty of voluntary manslaughter.
The Record of Stockton reports that McNabney’s family was notified that Dutra will be released Aug. 26 after serving most of her 11-year sentence.
