GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — One of the infamous Alpine Manor murderers is set to be released on Wednesday.

Catherine Wood was one of two nurse’s aides convicted in the nursing home murders back in 1987 and has served 29 years of her 20- to 40-year prison sentence.

Families of the victims have been fighting to keep her behind bars, but the Kent County prosecutor decided not to appeal her release.

The Michigan Department of Corrections says Wood will be released Wednesday, but didn’t say where. Prior to her release, Wood was being held at a facility in Florida.
