Woman killer denied appeal

London Free Press

OTTAWA -- A woman sentenced to life in prison for stomping another woman to death four years ago was denied leave to appeal the sentence yesterday by the Supreme Court of Canada.

Theresa Glaremin wanted the court to overturn her conviction on the grounds the judge erred in charging the jury.

Glaremin made headlines even after her conviction for the 1997 killing of Lyn Larose.

While serving her sentence, Glaremin was convicted of assault and uttering a threat for attacking another inmate she said had killed her fish.

Glaremin broke down in tears during a 1999 trial in which she described the deaths of two pets she kept in her cell at the prison for women in Kingston. She said inmate Tammy Papin deliberately killed her Betas.
