Homicide

Arizona woman convicted in her baby son's 2009 disappearance released from prison

An Arizona woman convicted in her young son's disappearance nearly five years ago is out of prison.

Elizabeth Johnson was released early Friday morning from the Perryville state prison west of Phoenix. KNXV-TV (http://bit.ly/1lZsz8o ) reports that Johnson walked out of the prison and left in her attorney's SUV.

Johnson was given a more than 5-year sentence in 2012 for custodial interference and unlawful imprisonment in the 2009 disappearance of her then-8-month-old son, Gabriel. The baby has never been found.

A jury deadlocked on a kidnapping charge, the most serious count against Johnson, who turns 28 later this month.

Johnson maintained her story that she gave Gabriel away to a couple in Texas.

Johnson was credited for almost three years spent in jail awaiting trial and now faces four years' probation.
