Woman faces escape, menacing and weapons counts as well as murder

ROCHESTER — The suspect in the Brockport murder from last month has been indicted.

In an email Friday afternoon, the Monroe County District Attorney's Office announced Holly Colino, 31, had been indicted on nine counts including murder, six counts of criminal possession of a weapon, escape and menacing.

Police say Colino shot Lyndonville mother Megan Dix while Dix was eating her lunch in a parking lot off South Avenue in Brockport on Friday, August 25. Officers say Colino did not know Dix and the attack appears to have been random, adding Dix was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Deputies say Colino was arrested in Henrietta the following Monday after a separate incident in which she is accused of pointing a gun at an employee at Sticky Lips on Jefferson Road. After that arrest, deputies say Colino was able to slip a handcuff and escape. She was missing for two hours before being apprehended.

“I want to thank everyone involved in the swift apprehension of Holly Colino,” said First Assistant District Attorney Perry Duckles. “We look forward to bringing this case through the criminal justice system and bringing justice to Megan Dix’s friends and family."

"I am pleased with the Grand Jury's indictment of Holly Colino on multiple charges related to the death of Megan Dix," said Monroe County Sheriff Patrick O'Flynn. “Through the great work of the Brockport Police Department and the members of the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, Ms. Colino was able to be quickly apprehended and arrested for these charges."
