Mississippi woman imprisoned in state trooper slaying case sues parole board

PEARL, Miss. — A Mississippi woman convicted of helping her boyfriend kill a state trooper decades ago has filed suit against the parole board, claiming it hasn’t granted her parole because of unfair retaliation.

Anita Krecic was convicted of accessory to murder in the fatal 1987 shooting of trooper David Bruce Ladner. She was sentenced to life in prison and eligible for parole after serving 10 years.

Krecic said she’s been a model prisoner but was denied parole at least nine times. A lawsuit refiled in federal court Friday said the parole board was discriminatory.

A special attorney general denied the claims, saying the board acted reasonably.
