SODUS, NY (KFDA) - Former Sunray police chief Timothy Dean and his wife, Charlene Childers, will be tried together for their charges related to the Sodus double homicide.
According to CBS station WROC, a Wayne County judge has decided that Dean and Childers will be tried together rather than separate.
Dean faces charges of one count of first-degree murder and two counts of second-degree murder. Childers faces second-degree murder and conspiracy charges.
The two are accused of the shooting death of 28-year-old Joshua Niles and 24-year-old Amber Washburn in October.
According to a news release issued by Bohlar’s attorney, he rented a car for Dean that police say Dean used to drive to Sodus where the shooting occurred.
Jury selection for the trial is scheduled for May 15.
