MAHONING COUNTY Judge releases woman convicted in slaying



Published: Thu, February 3, 2005 @ 12:00 a.m.



The woman shot her uncle in her home in 2000.

YOUNGSTOWN -- Judge Jack Durkin of Mahoning County Common Pleas Court has given a Youngstown woman another chance to get her life in order.

Judge Durkin granted judicial release, formerly known as shock parole or probation, earlier this week to Cheree T. Moore, 25, formerly of Cohasset Drive. She had served four years of a six-year prison term on a voluntary manslaughter charge.

Moore originally was charged with murder in the shooting of her uncle Edward Moore, 36, at her Cohasset Drive home July 25, 2000.

After a plea-bargained agreement, she pleaded guilty in October 2000 to the voluntary manslaughter charge with the specification that a firearm was used in the crime. She was sentenced to three years on the manslaughter charge and three years on the gun specification.

Petitioning the court

Moore petitioned the court last October for judicial release.

While incarcerated at Marysville Reformatory for Women, she received her General Educational Development diploma and successfully completed an anger management program.

In a letter to Judge Durkin, she said her desire is to turn her life around and see her two daughters, who have been reared by family members.

Court documents show that her uncle came to her home, beat her and tried to hit her with a beer bottle. She grabbed a gun kept in the home for protection and fired once to stop her uncle from the assault. When he continued coming toward her, she shot him.

After hearing from family members, who supported her early release, the judge granted the defense motion to let her out of prison.
