Former Sunray Police Department officer Bron Bohlar was sentenced to one to three years in prison Thursday for his role in the murder of Joshua Niles and Amber Washburn in Sodus, New York in October 2018. He pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy in the case and testified in the murder trial of former Sunray Police Department chief Timothy Paul Dean that he knowingly rented a car for Dean to drive to New York to commit the murders. Dean was accused of shooting Niles and Washburn to death. He was convicted of first and second degree murder and will be sentenced July 25.
Dean's wife, Charlene Childers, pleaded guilty to one count of manslaughter for her role in the murders. She testified in Dean's trial that she and Dean began planning the murders in August 2018, after she lost a custody battle for the two children that she had with her ex-boyfriend Niles. She will be sentenced June 27.
