One of the individuals convicted in the double-murder that happened in Sodus was paroled on Friday.
Bron Bohlar was sentenced in June 2019 to 1-3 years in prison for his roel in the murder of Joshua Niles and Amber Washburn, both Sodus residents.
Bohlar was accused of helping Timothy Dean rent a vehicle to drive from Texas to Sodus where the fatal shooting took place.
Dean and Charlene Childers were married. Childers shared children with Niles. The three acted together, according to prosecutors, resulting in the shooting death of the young couple.
Bohlar testified during the murder trial that he knew about the murder plot. There was apparently a plan to make the death look like a drug overdose. At the time, Bohlar even claimed that he thought the murder plot was a joke.
Childers pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced to 20 years in prison. Dean was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
