Parole board approves release of convicted killer Conrad Engweiler

Convicted killer Conrad Engweiler is going to be released from prison in a little over a month.

The parole board reviewed a psychosexual risk assessment of Engweiler and decided he should be released.

Engweiler raped and murdered Erin Reynolds, his 16-year-old classmate at Sunset High in 1990.

The board did note that while he committed a "heinous" and "vicious," it is bound to follow the parole rules that were in effect at the time of the murder.

Engweiler, who's now 40, will be released in 45 days.

He was one of the notorious "Oregon Five" men who was convicted of aggravated murder as teenagers in the 1990s, before Measure 11 established mandatory minimum sentences for major crimes.
