    SODUS, N.Y. -- Wayne County Sheriff's Office deputies have released the names of two people who were fatally shot Monday afternoon in the village of Sodus.

    Joshua Niles, 28, and Amber Washburn, 24, both of 29 Carlton St., were killed, deputies said.

    [...]

    "We believe these people were targeted and the general public is not at risk," according to a sheriff's office news release.

    The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office continues efforts to locate the daytime killer of a Sodus couple shortly after 2 p.m. on Monday (10/22) at 29 Carlton Street in the Village of Sodus.

    The execution style shooting left Joshua Edwin Niles, age 28, dead in his driveway. Amber Monique Washburn, age 24, was shot sitting in their vehicle. With the car in reverse, drifting backwards into the yard at 29 Carlton Street, she bled out as her autistic son sat in the back seat. The child was later pulled safely out of the vehicle.

    The man ran through the backyard of one home near the shooting, and a resident there said the suspect was wearing “a dark hoodie and a green hat,” according to Stephen Sklenar, the Chief Deputy with the sheriff’s Office.

    Investigation into Sodus double homicide continues


    A Texas couple is facing charges of murder and conspiracy in the October 22 double murder of Joshua Niles and Amber Washburn in Sodus.

    Wayne County Sheriff Barry Virts announced Monday that Charlene Childers, 25, who was arrested in Wayne County last week, is facing a charge of second degree conspiracy in addition to a charge of criminal possession of a weapon.

    [...]

    Timothy Dean, Childers' husband, remains in Texas and is facing a warrant charging him with one count of first-degree murder, two counts of second-degree murder, one charge of conspiracy in the second degree and two counts of criminal possession of weapon.

    [...]

    Dean is the former police chief in Sunray and resigned after he was arrested on a charge of causing injury to a child in May.

    [...]

    Childers was seen at a vigil for the victims a few days after their deaths. Childers was previously married to Niles and is the mother of two of his children.

    I can't find anything other than the arrests and TD resigning as police chief. I can't believe they've done this to these poor kids (and their parents). Not to mention CC turning up to the vigil.

    Well, I have no idea why Charlene and her BF/hubby were charged with child abuse earlier, but it's quite apparent by their actions following (with the murders) that she couldn't care less about her children. So, the child abuse doesn't surprise me. The murder of their Dad is another form of child abuse, IMHO. Those little children are the ones who will suffer the long-term deepest hurt. What in the world were they thinking...that no one would suspect them? The stupidity of this woman (Charlene) is mind boggling.

    Sounds like the Sunray Texas PD would benefit from a housecleaning.

    Hearing set for woman charged in Sodus double murder


    February 21, 2019 12:30 PM
    LYONS, N.Y. (WHEC) - A hearing is now set for the woman charged in connection to the murder of a Sodus couple.

    Charlene Childers appeared in Wayne County Court Thursday morning.
    [.....]
    A Huntley hearing is scheduled for March 12 to argue over statements and what should be allowed at trial.

    "The basic issue for the hearing is if the police conduct was proper, if she was in custody and mirandized, and if she freely and voluntarily gave the statement," Christine Callanan, the assistant district attorney said.

    The trial for Childers and Dean will be held at the same time, starting May 20.

    Attorneys argue timing of Miranda rights for woman charged in Sodus double-homicide (with clip)

    March 12, 2019

    "Lyons, N.Y. (WHAM) - Attorneys gathered in court Tuesday for a hearing about one of the suspects accused in the murder of a Sodus couple last fall.

    Charlene Childers is one of three people charged in connection to the murders of Joshua Niles and Amber Washburn.

    Childers was the mother of two of Niles' children; those children were living with Niles and Washburn in Sodus.

    On October 22, Childers' husband, Timothy Dean, allegedly shot Niles and Washburn dead. Both are charged with murder.

    During the hearing in Wayne County Court on Tuesday, attorneys went over the accounts of witnesses and law enforcement on the day Childers became a suspect in the murder investigation....

    Charges filed against Childers, Dean, and a third man - Bron Bohlar - allege that Dean conspired with Childers and Bohlar to plan the murders, then drove up from Texas where he and Childers lived at the time to Sodus using a rental car that Bohlar paid for.

    Bohlar later pleaded guilty to conspiracy and is scheduled to be sentenced in mid-June.

    Attorneys argued in court Tuesday over whether Childers was read her Miranda rights at the appropriate time....

    Childers is scheduled to return to court on April 11. The next court appearance for Dean is scheduled for Friday."

    Childers went from 'person of interest' to shooting suspect

    3/13/19

    "LYONS — Charlene Childers went from a person of interest to a suspect in a Sodus double homicide over the course of four hours of questioning by a Wayne County sheriff’s office investigator.

    In a Huntley hearing Tuesday afternoon before Wayne County Court Judge Daniel Barrett to determine whether investigators properly obtained statements from Childers, Det. Sgt. Roger LeClair testified under questioning by Wayne County Assistant District Attorney Christine Callanan that Childers was a “person of interest” even prior to bringing her in for questioning on Oct. 29...

    LeClair testified that he was monitoring Childers’ movements following the shooting.

    “Everybody was a person of interest,” he said under questioning by Childers’ attorney, Romolo Canzano.

    LeClair testified that when Childers’ husband, Dean, was taken in by authorities in Texas working in conjunction with Wayne County investigators, he decided it was time to bring her in for questioning....

    LeClair said at that time, about 3:55 a.m., he read Childers her Miranda rights. Those rights include the right to remain silent, as well as the right to an attorney.

    LeClair testified that she agreed to continue with the questioning, and said she also agreed to hand over her phone and provide the password.

    The investigator said he learned that there was a warrant for Childers in Texas related to a child abuse — along with Dean —and informed her of the charge. It was at that time, said LeClair, that she asked for an attorney and the questioning ended he said. All told, Childers was questioned from about 2:30 a.m. to 6 a.m., said LeClair.

    Barrett will make ruling in the next few weeks as to whether sheriff’s investigators properly questioned Childers, and her attorney, Canzano, said after the hearing that there are some questions about whether police properly followed protocol....
    Dean, the former police chief of Sunray, Texas, is charged with first-degree murder, second-degree murder, second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and second-degree conspiracy. He is scheduled to have a Huntley hearing on March 22, while Childers has another pre-trial hearing April 11....

    Bohlar is scheduled to be sentenced in June."
