The case against a woman accused of planning the double murder in Sodus will now be headed to Wayne County Court.
Charlene Childers, 25, is facing conspiracy and weapons charges related to the deaths of Josh Niles, 28, and Amber Washburn, 24. The couple was shot and killed outside their home on Carlton Street in Sodus back in October.
Timothy Dean, Childers' husband and a former Texas police chief, and Bron Bohlar, a Texas police officer are also facing charges in connection with the murders.
Court documents show Childers, Dean, and Bohlar talked about killing Niles several times and they both helped Dean rent the car he used to drive from Texas to New York. Investigators say Dean, 32, pulled the trigger.
Before walking into Sodus Town Court Thursday, News10NBC's Kaci Jones asked Childers if she had anything to say considering the fact she was so vocal at the vigil two days after Niles and Washburn were shot dead. Childers said nothing.
"I'm the mother of his children," Childers said at the vigil. "It's not something that you ever want to find out. All I have to say to y'all is justice needs to be served. My kids need closure. Whoever did it has now made it to where my kids grow up without a dad and that's nothing a kid should ever have to do."
Those are chilling words to hear from someone who is now charged with conspiracy and criminal possession of a weapon in this case.
Dean and Bohlar remain in Moore County Jail in Texas. Dean is facing murder, conspiracy, and weapons charges while Bohlar is charged with conspiracy.
News10NBC is working to find out when they will be extradited to Wayne County to face charges in connection with the double homicide.
Childers remains behind bars on $100,000 bail. Her attorney declined comment to News10NBC outside court.
