Ex-Texas cop gets prison in connection with double murder in New York
SODUS, N.Y. (AP) - A former Texas police officer who pleaded guilty in connection with a New York double homicide will spend up to three years in prison.
Bron Bohlar of Sunray, Texas, was sentenced Thursday. He pleaded guilty to conspiracy in February.
Bohlar rented a car for former Sunray police chief Timothy Dean.
Dean drove to Sodus, New York, where he killed Josh Niles and Amber Washburn in October.
Judge Daniel Barrett said Bohlar knew what was going on but did nothing to prevent the bloodshed, according to WHEC.
Dean will be sentenced on July 25 for his murder conviction.
Dean's wife, Charlene Childers, has said she helped plan the murder of Josh Niles. She will be sentenced for manslaughter June 27.
The dead man, Niles, had won custody of two children he had with Childers.
