Washington state Corrections Department spokesman Chad Lewis told 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.
