PEARL, Miss. (AP) -- Two imprisoned sisters whose life sentences were suspended on the condition that one donates a kidney to the other are set to leave a Mississippi prison.
Jamie and Gladys Scott will leave the Central Mississippi Correctional Facility on Friday after being incarcerated for 16 years.
They are moving to the Florida Panhandle, where their mother and grown children live.
Thirty-six-year-old Jamie Scott is on dialysis, which officials say costs the state about $200,000 a year.
Gov. Haley Barbour agreed to release her because of her medical condition. But 38-year-old Gladys Scott's release order says one of the conditions she must meet is to donate the kidney to her sister within one year.
