VIDEO: Application Withdrawn for McClintic Compensation

An application for compensation on behalf of Terri-Lynn McClintic has been withdrawn.

Lawyers for the woman convicted of killing eight-year-old Tori Stafford say they have withdrawn an application for a review of their client's move from a healing lodge back to prison.

In an e-mail, her lawyers say the application on behalf of Terri-Lynn McClintic was discontinued last week and is no longer active. However, the application still went before an Edmonton judge, who ruled Monday that a review of McClintic's transfer is warranted, but additional papers needed to be filed.

McClintic's lawyers did not say if they intend to renew the application in Alberta or another jurisdiction after Monday's decision.

McClintic and her boyfriend, Michael Rafferty, are serving life sentences for the first-degree murder of Tori, who was abducted while walking home from school in Woodstock, Ont. in 2009.

She was repeatedly raped and bludgeoned with a hammer.
