FILE - In a Tuesday May 6, 2014 file photo, Bernie Tiede is escorted into the Panola County Courthouse, in Carthage, Texas. Three of the jurors who gave Tiede a life sentence for killing 81-year-old Marjorie Nugent say they're not happy he's being released early. The jurors spoke to the Longview News-Journal days after Tiede was let out of prison for the murder of Nugent. Tiede was released on bond on May 6, 2014 after the district attorney who prosecuted him agreed to let him out of a life sentence. The killing and the reaction of the town of Carthage were profiled in the 2011 movie "Bernie," which drew new attention to the case. (AP Photo/The News-Journal, Michael Cavazos, File)
