According to the Daily News, A woman who helped orchestrate the savage rape and murder of a college student by luring the young woman to her boyfriend’s apartment in 2012 was denied parole on Thursday — even though the victim’s father said he has sympathy for the situation she was in two years ago.

Kathryn McDonough, now 21, was sentenced to 18 months to three years after she lied to police about a murder charge brought against her then-boyfriend, 32-year-old Seth Mazzaglia.

She was denied parole at a hearing on Thursday afternoon, WHDH reported.

If she were to be granted parole, she would have been released from jail in January.

Mazzaglia had been upset with McDonough after she reportedly left him for two weeks without a sex partner.  To make up for it he demanded that she bring home another female to participate in acts of S&M.

McDonough invited 19-year-old University of New Hampshire student Elizabeth Marriott to the apartment in October 2012 in order to please her boyfriend.

When Marriott twice refused Mazzaglia’s advances,, he strangled her and then raped her dead body.

Afterwards, the couple reportedly dumped the body off an island in New Hampshire, which it has never been recovered.

Mazzaglia was convicted of murder and sentenced to life without the possibility of parole.

McDonough was eventually charged with lying to police after she insisted for months that Marriott died during consensual rough sex.

McDonough accepted a deal for a lighter sentence in exchange for her testifying against Mazzaglia as part of the plea deal.

The father of the victim, Bob Marriott, has softened his stance on McDonough recently, going so far as to say he can sympathize with the situation she found herself in that fateful night.

“I have a lot of reason to very much dislike her and her involvement in what happened to my daughter,” Bob Marriott said in the report. “I also have a lot of sympathy for the situation she was in and what she was put through by that person we just sent to jail.”
