SEATTLE -- The father-in-law of a missing Utah woman is expected to be released from a Washington prison next month, less than a year after he was sentenced to 2 1/2 years for recording images of two neighbor girls in their bathroom.

Washington state Corrections Department spokesman Chad Lewis tells KING-TV that Steven Powell will be released May 23 from the Monroe Correctional Complex. He began his sentence last June 19.

Lewis says most offenders can get time subtracted from their original sentence for good behavior and meeting other criteria.

Susan Powell disappeared from her Utah home in 2009. Her husband, Josh, was a focus of the investigation until he killed himself and the couple's two children in February

2012. Steven Powell was arrested after authorities investigating Susan Powell's disappearance searched his home.
