An accused killer has been released on bail today in St. Lawrence County.

Oral "Nick" Hillary has been released after posting 150 thousand dollars bail after being charged with Second Degree Murder in May.

Hillary is the former mens soccer coach at Clarkson University. He's accused of murdering 12 year old Garrett Phillips inside his Potsdam home in 2011.

At the time, Hillary had a relationship with the boys mother but prosecutors haven't revealed any motive in the case. Under the terms of his release, Hillary cannot leave St. Lawrence County without permission.
