Christchurch child killer set for prison release, banned from associating with youngsters
She was found guilty of killing 17-month-old Christchurch toddler Shae Hammond in 1997 with a blow to the back of her head.
She was babysitting the little girl at the time.
After serving 15 years in jail for the violent crime, Healy was released on parole, but was recalled in November 2014 for what the Parole Board called “abysmal behaviour”.
It was alleged she spent time with a neighbour’s child and drank alcohol.
The Parole Board has released its decision today, which says “Healy has expressed a willingness and ability to abide by a condition prohibiting her from having contact with children and adolescents under the age of 16 without an approved adult being present”.
