A Californian man sentenced to abuse 15 years ago for assault, strangulation, sexual abuse and then the murder of a woman in her apartment is about to go on conditional release – and the victim's family is furious.
Brian Rainwater, 47, will be released from prison in November, after serving 10 years for the brutal murder of Jackie Cassettari.
Cassettari was found clubbed in her apartment in Livermore, California in April 2005.
A family member came to the apartment looking for her after she did not show up for her service at work.
Researchers found her body in the living room. She had a cord wrapped around her face, chin, and left arm.
A plastic zipper was also fastened around her right wrist and her sports bra pulled over her chest.
After the crime, Rainwater used Cassettari's mobile phone to set up a hotline for & # 39; sexual conversations & # 39; to call, according to the authorities.

Rainwater and Cassettari were employees in a nearby factory.
Despite his original sentence of 15 years, the Cassettari family is angry that Rainwater was granted after 10 years of release.
The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation told Fox 40 TV that Rainwater is released early because of the time served and because of the earned credits while attending lectures in prison.
Authorities have also downgraded part of the accusations against him into crimes.

Cassettari's cousin, Steffanie Cruser, is furious that Rainwater may return home to the Tracy suburb of Bay Area, not far from the survivors of his victim.
& # 39; You have taken the most beautiful soul and you are a sick person and I think you deserve to die the way you took it from us, & # 39; Cruser said.
The family wanted, according to Cruser, to condemn Rainwater to life imprisonment.
& # 39; We wanted him to be there for life, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; We wanted him to suffer and never see the light of day again.
& # 39; Now he is released in Tracy, where his family lives?
& # 39; It's just … it's not OK. & # 39;
Cruser said the family will ask the authorities to release Rainwater elsewhere.
& # 39; Far away, far away, because nobody wants him to meet him in a supermarket or gas station, & # 39; she said.
