LI inmate who needs transplant ordered back to jail

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

A shoplifter who was released from a Long Island jail so she could spend her dying days in a hospice has been ordered back behind bars.

A judge received information from the Nassau County hospice that Diane McCloud could live another six months.

Earlier this month, a doctor had indicated the 48-year-old was near death.

McCloud made headlines last year when she was released from jail to pursue a heart transplant. She lost that chance when she was arrested again after shoplifting at three drugstores. She pleaded guilty to petit larceny.
