Bron Bohlar sentenced for role in murder of couple in Sodus

The former Texas police officer who was involved in a plot to murder two people in the Village of Sodus was sentenced on Thursday.

Bron Bohlar will serve 1-3 years in prison on a conspiracy charge as part of a plea deal he made with the prosecution. When the plea agreement was originally reached, prosecutors said Bohlar helped Timothy Dean rent a car that was used to get Dean from Texas to Sodus where he shot and killed Joshua Niles and Amber Washburn.

Prosecutors say Niles shared children with Dean’s wife, Charlene Childers, who had recently lost custody to Niles. They say that was the motive for the crime.
