Dairy princess convicted in 1989 death up for parole hearing
WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) - A former dairy princess convicted of killing her ex-boyfriend's fiancee 27 years ago in a case featured in a made-for-TV movie is up for a parole hearing.
Lori Esker, now 48, was convicted in 1990 of first-degree intentional homicide in the death of Lisa Cihaski. The 21-year-old woman was strangled with a belt by Esker in a car in a Rib Mountain motel parking lot. Cihaski was engaged to Esker's former boyfriend. Witnesses testified the Marathon County dairy princess was obsessive and still wanted a relationship with the man.
WSAW-TV reports Esker is scheduled for a parole hearing Wednesday. A parole decision is expected to take several weeks. The case was featured in the TV movie "Beauty's Revenge" which aired on NBC and Lifetime.
