The Oklahoma Department of Corrections says Gov. Kevin Stitt has signed the commutation sentence of Tondalao Hall and she is to be released Friday morning.

Her release comes about one month after the state Pardon and Parole Board voted unanimously to recommend that Stitt commute her sentence to time served.

Hall's ex-boyfriend, Robert Braxton Jr., pleaded guilty to abusing the children and was released on probation after a couple of years in jail.
