First parole hearing scheduled for Watkins Glen man convicted of murdering girlfriend

The Watkins Glen man who killed his 15-year-old girlfriend back in 2000, will have his first parole hearing in October.

35-year-old Joshua Horein was 16-years-old when he killed Amber Brockway in an abandoned building near Seneca Lake. He pleaded guilty to 2nd degree murder seven months later in April of 2001. He was sentenced to 20-to-life in prison, and is currently serving at Fishkill Correctional Facility in Beacon, N.Y., about an hour north of New York City.

The Schuyler County District Attorney’s Office is urging anyone who wants to weigh in on his parole hearing to do so. The DA’s office says you can write a letter opposing his release from prison, and you can either drop it off at the DA’s office or mail it in.
