Irondequoit Police say the woman in custody for the murder of a young mother in Irondequoit is being transported back to Monroe County Friday.

Police say Joanne Y. Armour-Christopher was being held in Chicago. She is being charged with second-degree murder in the case of 28-year-old Lacandice Miles.

Last month, police found the body of Miles inside her apartment on Strathmore Circle in Irondequoit. Her four small children were also found inside. The children were taken to the hospital as a precaution.

Armour-Christopher will be arraigned Wednesday before Supreme Court Justice Renzi.
