Gypsy Rose Blanchard gives first interview after killing her mother in Wisconsin

WISCONSIN (CBS 58) -- The Missouri woman who ran away to Wisconsin after killing her mother is speaking out for the first time since her sentencing.

"Nothing justifies murder. I think that abuse should be punished by prison."

Gypsy Rose Blanchard spoke to Doctor Phil at a Missouri prison.

Authorities say she endured years of abuse before enlisting her boyfriend, Big Bend native Nicholas Godejohn, to stab and kill her mother Dee Dee Blanchard. 

Investigators say Dee Dee convinced everyone that Gypsy Rose was disabled and chronically ill which turned out to be a lie.

"On one hand she was dicing you up girl. How many surgeries did you have? So many. 10? 20? I'm pretty sure 30. I have to pray to forgive my mother."

Blanchard is serving 10 years for second-degree murder. Godejohn is still awaiting trial.
