I recently wrote about a Tooele woman ordered to serve her full 15-year prison sentence for child abuse homicide. Connie Jean Long and her husband caused their 5-month-old son to suffocate in 2005 after stuffing a pacifier in his mouth and wrapping his head with an afghan.
She first went to prison in July 2005 and was paroled in January 2009. She returned to prison in February 2010 and was paroled for the second time four months later. But Long again violated terms of her release and was brought back to prison in April 2012.
The Utah Board of Pardons and Parole held a parole hearing for Long on Oct. 1. About a week later, the board decided Long will not be released until January 2020.
