COLBERT COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Two accomplices in a Colbert County murder will soon be up for parole. Three people went to prison for hindering prosecution and abuse of a corpse in the 2011 death of Amanda Taylor.

Now, less than four months after their sentencing, two of the three accomplices are up for parole.

According to the state's parole board, Ashley Greenhill is up for parole later this month and Matthew Fox will be up for parole in September.

Greenhill and Fox, along with Laurel Pruett, all pleaded guilty to hindering prosecution and abuse of a corpse back in May. The plea agreement came in exchange for testimony against now convicted killer Ronald Weems.

A Colbert County judge sentenced the trio to ten years for abuse of a corpse and ten years for hindering prosecution. Their sentences set to run concurrently, giving them credit for time served.

Ashley Greenhill's parole hearing is set for August 21st, Matthew Fox's hearing is September 18th.

No word on Laurel Pruett's hearing.

As for Taylor's killer, Ronald Weems is currently serving a life sentence. He has since been denied a motion for mistrial and has been appointed a new attorney who plans to take the case to the court of criminal appeals.
