The woman convicted in the first-degree murder of a Woodstock girl has been transferred back to prison from an Indigenous healing lodge.

The news came out  Thursday morning that Terri-Lynne McClintic has been transferred from the healing lodge in Saskatchewan to the Edmonton Institution for Women.

McClintic was convicted in the kidnapping, rape, and murder of eight-year-old Tori Stafford in 2009.

Tori’s father, Rodney Stafford, tells the My Stratford Now Newsroom he was informed of the move when he received a phone call.

“Our fight for justice has come true, Terri-Lynne has been placed back behind bars where she belongs and it was a great feeling to see the number come up on the phone.”

Stafford adds that he still wants answers about why McClintic was transferred from prison to a healing lodge in the first place.
