KANSAS CITY — A Kansas City woman who briefly made the FBI's Ten Most Wanted Fugitive list has been released from prison after three years.

Shauntay Henderson was convicted in May 2007 of voluntary manslaughter and armed criminal action after initially being charged with second-degree murder. The charges were related to the September 2006 shooting death of 20-year-old DeAndre Parker.

In March 2007 the FBI described Henderson as a gang leader who was a "person of interest" in four or five other homicides and up to 50 shootings.

Henderson was the eighth woman to be included on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted list since its inception 57 years ago, and the first woman on the list since 1994.

She was arrested a few hours after being placed on the list.
