Victim's family angered that man convicted of killing a sheriff's deputy was released early

Did a man convicted of killing a sheriff's deputy 15 years ago get out of prison too early?

That's the question the Kentucky Justice and Public Safety Cabinet and Commonwealth's Attorney will address Thursday afternoon.

Peter Bard was released from prison July 1st.  At last check, he was taken immediatley to a psychiatric ward.

Bard was convicted and sentenced to 20 years for the shooting death of Jefferson County deputy Floyd Cheeks in 1993.

Cheeks' son and wife say they're angry Bard was released without serving his entire sentence.
