(CBS/AP) PENSACOLA, Fla. - There's a "complication" in the case of Mississippi ex-convicts sisters Jamie and Gladys Scott, who won their release from life prison terms on the grounds that one sister would give the other a kidney.
The planned organ transplant apparently cannot take place until Jamie quits smoking and they lose a combined 160 pounds.
The sisters had served 16 years of their life sentences for a robbery when they were released on Jan. 7. They moved to Pensacola, Fla.
Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour set a condition of their freedom that Gladys give a kidney to Jamie, who suffers from kidney failure. Gladys had volunteered to do so.
Jamie Scott said Wednesday that a doctor said she has to lose 100 pounds to receive the transplant. She said would-be donor Gladys must lose 60 pounds and stop smoking.
Barbour hasn't said whether he'll send the sisters back to prison if the transplant doesn't happen.
