    A New Hampshire man convicted of hiding evidence and concocting an alibi for machete-wielding home invaders who killed a woman and maimed her daughter has been granted parole.

    Autumn Savoy admitted helping convicted killers Steven Spader and Christopher Gribble dump bloody clothing in the Nashua River on Oct. 4, 2009- hours after Kimberly Cates was hacked to death and 11-year-old Jaimie Cates was attacked at their Mont Vernon home.

    A state board granted him parole Tuesday.

    The now-25-year-old Savoy pleaded guilty in 2011 to conspiracy and hindering apprehension and was sentenced to five to 12 years in prison.

    Cates family friend Christopher Lussier told Savoy after the hearing that he'd been given a piece of freedom. Lussier said: "Make it count."
