ROCHESTER, NY (WROC) – The Texas police officer facing charges in connection to the double murder in Sodus has pleaded guilty to conspiracy.
Prosecutors said Bron Bohlar helped murder suspect Timothy Dean rent a car — which Dean in turn used to drive from Texas to Sodus, where investigators say Dean shot and killed Joshua Niles and Amber Washburn.
