HONOLULU – The mother of a Hawaii boy who disappeared 20 years ago is being released from jail after pleading guilty to manslaughter in the 6-year-old's death.
A judge is allowing supervised release for Jaylin Kema, who has served a year in jail.
State Department of Public Safety Spokeswoman Toni Schwartz says Kema was released from Hawaii Community Correctional Center Thursday.
Her husband, Peter Kema Sr., pleaded guilty to manslaughter earlier this month and provided authorities with information about the location of the boy's remains.
Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Rick Damerville says her release is contingent upon conditions including drug testing, not leaving Hawaii Island and no contact with her children.
Court-appointed defense attorney Brian De Lima says she will return to the Puna home where she lived when she was arrested.
