LEWISTON -- One of two brothers convicted of killing a Texas couple in northern Idaho 30 years ago and sentenced to life in prison has been given a release date.

The Lewiston Tribune reports that the Idaho Commission on Pardons and Parole on Friday set Oct. 24, 2018, as the release date for 55-year-old Bryan S. Lankford.

Lankford and his older brother, Mark, were convicted of the 1983 beating deaths of U.S. Marine Capt. Robert Bravence and his wife, Cheryl Bravence, of El Paso, Texas.

Mark Lankford is serving life in prison without possibility of parole.

After the killings, the brothers hid the bodies and took the couple's vehicle, money and credit cards on a trip to California.

They were apprehended when they returned to their home state of Texas.
