SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — A California woman convicted of conspiring to kill her identical twin sister has been granted parole after nearly two decades in prison.

In a case that made international headlines, Jeen Han — who policed dubbed the "evil twin" — was sentenced to 26 years to life in 1998.

Han and two others were found guilty of conspiracy to commit murder, burglary and false imprisonment.

Prosecutors said the trio conspired in a failed plan to murder Sunny Han, who was tied up along with her roommate before police rescued them.

The Orange County Register reported Monday that the parole board recommended release for Jeen  Han, now 43. Gov. Jerry Brown will have final say on upholding or rejecting parole during a review period.

Jeen Han said she never intended to kill her sister.
