“Black Widow” Catherine Nevin, who is embroiled in a legal battle for half her late husband's $1.3 million fortune, is set to walk free from prison after her application for parole was accepted.

The 62-year-old will first be let out for days and weekends before being granted permanent release. It is expected that she will be back on the streets within the next eight weeks.

She was convicted 12 years ago with the murder of her husband, Tom, in Jack White's Pub in 1997.
