Man convicted of helping bury body in Old Louisville basement released from prison

 LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A man is out of prison on parole after serving time for facilitation to robbery and tampering with physical evidence in the 2009 murder of James Carroll.

Jeffrey Mundt was convicted of those crimes in June 2013 and sentenced to eight years in prison. He was released Friday on Mandatory Re-entry Supervision, according to Lisa Lamb, a spokeswoman for the Department of Corrections.

Mundt was arrested and charged with murder along with his ex-boyfriend Joseph Banis in June 2010. 

The trial process was lengthy and the men turned on each other during testimony. Eventually, Mundt was acquitted of murder. Banis, however, was convicted and is currently serving a life sentence.

Mundt received credit for the more than three years he served behind bars during the legal process.
