Detra Farries Early Release Halted Pending Upcoming Vote

A complaint from the widow of a Colorado Springs tow-truck driver who was dragged to his death in 2011 has led officials to halt the early prison release of Detra Farries, the woman convicted of killing him.

The Arapahoe County Community Corrections Board will vote on whether to revisit its decision on October 17th.  

Last month the board accepted Farries transfer to a Denver-area women’s halfway house.

After the decision became public, an El Paso County prosecutor notified the community corrections program that the victim’s wife hadn’t been properly notified that the transfer was being considered.
