DEERFIELD, N.Y. -- The man who shot and killed two alleged attempted burglars last week at his Walker Road home -- is out of jail Tuesday.

The Oneida County District Attorney’s Office agreed to Ronald Stolarczyk’s release from jail without any requirement for bail.

The 64-year-old Deerfield man was back in court Monday night for his felony hearing. Stolarczyk was arrested and charged with criminal possession of a firearm.

Police say he shot and killed 57-year-old Patricia Talerico and 27-year-old Nicholas Talerico with an illegally-owned handgun that was left to him by his deceased father.

Stolarczyk was not charged in connection with their deaths.

After this incident, Stolarczyk's house was condemned, and he's not able to go back.

Wolber says Stolarczyk is being provided with temporary shelter and benefits through Social Services.

He's due back in court August 5. His attorney is asking for a dismissal of the charges in the interest of justice.
