Ex-girlfriend of slain man arrested, her husband also jailed
SODUS, N.Y. (AP) — New York authorities say the ex-girlfriend of an upstate man fatally shot last week is in custody. Meanwhile, officials in Texas say her husband, a former police chief, is also jailed.
The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office says 25-year-old Charlene Childers of Sunray, Texas, has been arraigned on a fugitive of justice charge.
Childers is the ex-girlfriend of Joshua Niles, who was fatally shot Oct. 22 along with his girlfriend Amber Washburn outside the home Niles and Washburn shared in Sodus, 25 miles (40 kilometers) east of Rochester.
No one has been charged in the slayings.
Texas police say Childers’ husband, Timothy Dean, is being held Tuesday in a local jail on a charge of injury to a child.
The public defender representing Childers isn’t commenting. Police in Texas didn’t know if Dean has a lawyer.
