Marybeth Tinning, Jailed for Killing Infant in '85, Paroled

A Schenectady woman, convicted of killing her infant daughter in 1985, will soon be getting out of prison.

Marybeth Tinning, now 75, has been granted parole after serving over 30 years of a 20 to life sentence. 

She was indicted in the deaths of three of her children, and found guilty of smothering four month old Tami Lynne. 

In fact, all nine of her children died young between 1972 and 1985, eight under what were termed suspicious circumstances. 

Tinning's husband, Joseph, tells the Gazette he's very glad it will soon be all over with, and expects he and his wife will eventually live in Duanesburg. 

DA Bob Carney says he's not second guessing the Parole Board's decision, but says she's never really acknowledged what she did.
