A state official says a California woman captured 32 years after she escaped from a Michigan prison will be released on May 19.

Corrections Department spokesman Russ Marlan says the Michigan parole board voted unanimously Wednesday to release Susan LeFevre.

She was captured in 2008 living a comfortable life under a different name in the San Diego area. LeFevre escaped from a Detroit-area prison in 1976 after serving about 14 months of a 10-year drug sentence.
