The so-called "baby-face butcher" has been released on parole after serving six years of a 10-year sentence.
Daphne Abdela, now 21, was released Friday from Albion Correctional Facility. Her accomplice and boyfriend at the time, 22-year-old Christopher Vasquez, was also paroled, on Wednesday.
They were convicted of manslaughter after killing and gutting 44-year-old real estate broker Michael McMorrow in Central Park in May 1997 after a night of binge drinking together. Abdela was only 15 years old at the time and looked even younger, earning her the nickname “baby-face butcher” in the tabloids.
Abdela is now living in the New York City area, and she checked in with her parole officer on Tuesday.
Abdela and Vasquez will be under parole supervision until 2007, and they are reportedly not allowed to see each other.
