Kentucky man convicted of helping bury body in basement out of prison, in halfway house


LOUISVILLE, Kentucky — A man convicted of helping his boyfriend bury a body in their Old Louisville home has been released from prison and allowed to serve the remainder of his time in a halfway house.

Kentucky Department of Corrections spokeswoman Lisa Lamb ( ) told The Courier-Journal Jeffrey Mundt will be on supervised probation.

A jury in Louisville acquitted Mundt in May 2013 of murder, but convicted him of facilitation to robbery and tampering with physical evidence and recommended he spend eight years in prison.

He had already been in jail several years awaiting trial, and was immediately eligible for parole.

A co-defendant, Joseph Banis, is serving life in prison for killing James Carroll after a drug-fueled sex party at Mundt's home in late 2009.
