Hope Schreiner Death – Family and friends are mourning a West Townshend, Vermont who passed away years after being convicted of her husband’s murder. Due to a “terminal or debilitating” illness, Hope Schreiner was found guilty in 2006 of killing her elderly husband. Hope was freed from jail early on a medical furlough, according to state officials.
According to Dean George, the chairman of the Vermont Parole Board, Hope Schreiner, the oldest female prisoner in the state and the second-oldest prisoner currently under detention, was freed and sent to a northern Vermont nursing home. George noted that the Department of Corrections, not the Parole Board, had decided to give Schreiner medical vacation.
