Convicted Conn. killer released after 27 years

A Connecticut woman imprisoned for 27 years for murder has been released early after state officials took the rare step of granting her clemency. Bonnie Jean Foreshaw thanked her supporters after walking out of York Correctional Institution in East Lyme Friday morning. Foreshaw, 66, was sentenced to 45 years in prison for premeditated murder in the 1986 killing of a pregnant woman, Joyce Amos, in Hartford. The fetus did not survive. Foreshaw had argued that she shot Amos by accident while defending herself against another person. Foreshaw was scheduled to be freed in August 2017.
