(WHAM) - One of the three people convicted in connection to a double murder case in Sodus has been released on parole.

Bron Bohlar, 36, was sentenced to 1-3 years in state prison after pleading guilty to conspiracy in the murders of Joshua Niles and Amber Washburn in October 2018.

According to New York State Parole records, Bohlar was released from prison Thursday.

Bohlar was an police officer with the Sunray Police Department in Texas. He admitted to conspiring with Timothy Dean, the former sheriff of the Sunray Police Department, and Charlene Childers - Niles' ex-boyfriend and Dean's wife - in the murders.

On October 22, 2018, Dean shot Niles 10 times in his driveway, then shot Washburn - Niles' fiancee - in the head as she came home at the wrong time.

Dean was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole; Childers was sentenced to 28 years in prison. She testified at trial that she and Dean plotted to kill Niles after she lost custody of their children.

Bohlar testified against Dean at his trial.
