Former Marathon County Dairy Princess to ask for prison release

Posted:
WISCONSIN (WAOW) -

Lori Esker, a former Marathon County Dairy Princess, goes before a parole board Wednesday asking to be released from prison.
     
A jury convicted her of strangling Lisa Cihaski in 1989 outside a Rib Mountain hotel. She is now 48.
    
Cihaski was engaged to Esker's former boyfriend.
    
The conviction came before Wisconsin revamped its sentencing guidelines making first-degree murder a mandatory life sentence.
    
Since 2003 the parole board has repeatedly denied Esker's requests to be released; her most recent request was in August.
