New California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has capped Thanksgiving week in America by giving two convicted killers their freedom.

The movie star-turned-politician agreed to parole a woman who killed her husband's mistress 16 years ago (87) after California's prison authorities advised him she was not a menace to society.

Arnie was reportedly touched by 51-year-old ROSARIO MUNOZ's efforts to raise cash for her victim's family.

It's the second time in a week the new Governor has freed a murderer - he also granted parole to an unnamed man convicted of a drink driving fatality in 1985.
