UPDATE:

The woman charged in connection with the double murder of a Sodus couple talked to her husband about killing her ex-husband several times, according to court documents.

Investigators say Charlene Childers, 25, worked with her husband Timothy Dean, 32, to plan the shooting. Childers allegedly helped Dean rent a car for him to drive to New York to kill her ex, Joshua Niles.

Deputies say Dean shot and killed Niles, 28, and Amber Washburn, 24, outside their Sodus home on Oct. 22.

The day after the killings, deputies say Childers had a loaded 9mm gun in Palmyra, the same type of gun used in the shooting.

Childers is facing conspiracy and weapons charged. She is being held on a $100,000 cash bail in Wayne County.

Dean is still being held in Texas where he was arrested last week. He faces charges of first and second-degree murder.

LYONS — The Wayne County Sheriff's Office announced an arrest Monday in connection to the Oct. 22 double homicide in Sodus.

Sheriff Barry Virts announced in a media briefing that 32-year-old Timothy Dean and 25-year-old Charlene Childers were charged in connection to the death of 28-year-old Joshua Niles and 24-year-old Amber Washburn.

Childers is charged with second-degree conspiracy and second-degree criminal possession of a weapon. She was arraigned and is being held on $100,000 cash bail in Wayne County.

Dean is charged with one count of first-degree murder, two counts of second-degree murder, second-degree conspiracy and two counts of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

Dean, a former Texas police chief, was being held in Texas on separate charges. The process to extradite him to New York has begun.

Last month, Niles and Washburn were killed outside their home on Carlton Street in a crime that has shaken the community.

The couple's 4-year-old son was in the car when his parents were killed. Niles' 9-year-old daughter and 7-year-old son from a previous relationship were at school during the shooting that put the entire school district on lockdown. Deputies say the children are now in the care of a loving family member.

Recently, Dean and Childers were taken into custody in connection with an unrelated incident in Texas, charged with causing injury to a child. Childers was being held in the Wayne County Jail; Dean, a former police chief in the Texas communities of Sunray and Dumas, was being held at the Moore County Correctional Facility in Texas.

Childers reportedly is the mother of two of Niles' children, and had been in a heated custody case with Niles.

Texas Rangers last week confirmed with News 10NBC that they were working with New York authorities on an investigation in Sodus.
