‘Fatal Attraction Killer’ Jennifer Reali Will Enter Halfway House

DENVER (CBS4) – More than two decades into her life sentence, a convicted murderer dubbed the “Fatal Attraction Killer” will be released soon to a halfway house in Lakewood.

In 1990 in Colorado Springs, Reali shot and killed Diane Hood, the wife of Reali’s lover, Brian Hood. He had convinced her to murder his wife.

Gov. Bill Ritter commuted her sentence in 2011 to make her eligible for parole, but that was denied. She is eligible again in 2016. Her good behavior factored into the move.

“I am not the woman I was 20 years ago,” she said then in an interview with CBS4.

Hood is serving a 37-year sentence for his wife’s murder.
