Kelee Davidson Released After Less Than Two Years in Jail

Kelee Davidson was released from prison on 7/6, three days before the three-year anniversary of the murder of her ex-husband, UCSB graduate student Jarrod Davidson, who was shot in the chest by his former father-in-law Philip Jones. Kelee was sentenced to four years in prison for being an accessory to the murder and committing perjury during the trial, but was released after serving slightly less than two years. She is forbidden to have contact with the daughter she and Jarrod had together.
