Rosario Munoz and Maria Suarez, who have been incarcerated in California for 15 and 22 years, respectively, have been approved for parole by Gov. Schwarzenegger after Gov.

Rosario was imprisoned in 1987 for accidentally killing her husband's lover, after 14 years of being abused by her husband. Maria was imprisoned in 1981 for involvement in the murder of a man who bought her for $200 at the age of 16 and abused her for 5 years. Rosario's INS hearing is on January 27 and Maria's is on January 28. See their support pages at http://www.freerosariomunoz.org and http://www.womaninprison.org
