DANBURY - The state parole board said today a Danbury woman who drowned her baby in a toilet will be released early.

Panna Krom was sentenced to 18 years in prison.

Prosecutors say Krom was 17 years old when she delivered the baby in a bathroom in 2006.

Krom is now 26 and says her sentence is excessive. 

Officials say she will be released on Sept. 30.
