ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - A western New York woman who set a fire that killed four of her children in 2012 has been released from prison.
According to the Democrat & Chronicle , Bobbie J. Kugler got out of the Albion State Correctional Institution on Monday.
Kugler set fire to a picture of her ex-boyfriend and tossed it onto a dresser filled with combustible materials at her Rochester home.
She said she had drunk four or five 40-ounce bottles of malt liquor and downed a handful of sleeping pills.
The fire killed 14-year-old Gage Reavey; 13-year-old Greg Kugler; 12-year-old Kandee Kugler; and 6-year-old Kaiden Kugler.
Parole documents say Kugler's release was based on her "positive programming, limited disciplinary record and expressions of remorse."
The parole board also received numerous letters of support for Kugler.
