A con­victed child killer who be­came the sub­ject of na­tional out­rage when it was learned she had been trans­ferred to an In­dige­nous heal­ing lodge is back in prison, the fa­ther of her young vic­tim said Thurs­day.

Rod­ney Stafford is­sued a brief, cel­e­bra­tory Face­book post an­nounc­ing that Ter­ri­Lynne Mc­Clin­tic was no longer at the Saskatchewan lodge. He later told a Toronto me­dia out­let that Mc­Clin­tic, who pleaded guilty in the bru­tal death of his 8-year-old daugh­ter, had been re­lo­cated to a prison in Ed­mon­ton overnight.

“It’s official!!! Terri-Lynne is back be­hind bars,” he wrote in the on­line post.

Mc­Clin­tic be­came a fig­ure of na­tional in­famy af­ter de­tails emerged about Tori Stafford’s 2009 slay­ing.

The girl from Wood­stock, Ont., who was miss­ing for three months be­fore her body was found, had been ab­ducted, re­peat­edly raped and ul­ti­mately blud­geoned to death with a ham­mer.
