RICHMOND, KY (WAVE) – Less than six months after being sentenced for trying to kill his wife, an eastern Kentucky man might soon be free.

William Cain, 56, pleaded guilty to second-degree manslaughter after putting rat poison in his wife Deborah's morning coffee in an attempt to kill her in May 2012. A judge sentenced Cain to 6 1/2 years in jail in March. He is eligible for parole in August.

Cain's wife said she plans to do what she can to have her husband's early release denied. She also said she still has nightmares about the ordeal.
