By Associated Press. CREATED Mar 6, 2014

HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) A woman who was sentenced to prison for her part in the deaths of her husband and the wife of a minister with whom she had an affair is no longer under state supervision.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the Kansas Department of Corrections says Lorna Anderson was released from parole supervision on Feb. 17.

She was released from prison in 2007 after pleading guilty in 1985 to soliciting the murder of her husband, and the wife of her minister, Tom Bird. She was living in Hutchinson under state supervision until February.

Bird was convicted of the first-degree murder in the death of his wife. He was paroled in 2004 and released from parole supervision in 2006.

The case was the subject of a 1987 television miniseries, ``Murder Ordained.''
