SODUS — There is a possible break in the case of a double homicide that happened in the Village of Sodus last week.

News10NBC has learned a former police chief from a small Texas town is being held on a $1-million bond.

Texas Rangers tell us that while the man was arrested for an alleged crime in Texas, he is a suspect in a major crime in Sodus, Wayne County too.  

Last week, Joshua Niles and Amber Washburn were gunned down in the middle of the day in the driveway of the home they shared in Sodus.Their four-year old child was in the backseat of the car at the time.

The suspect, who was dressed in dark clothes and gloves, ran away and a massive search ensued.  

On Monday, News10NBC confirmed with Texas Rangers that 32-year old Timothy Dean is behind bars at the Moore County Correctional Facility.  At 12:50 a.m., he was taken into police custody and charged with one count of injury to a child.

That alleged crime is connected to an incident in Texas but we've learned that Dean is being held on $1-million bond which is extremely rare for a charge of that nature.  

Rangers tell us they are working with the Wayne County Sheriff's Office on a separate investigation.  

Dean has not been charged with any crimes here in New York but social media posts tie him to Charlene Childers. Childers was in a heated custody dispute with Joshua Niles before Niles was murdered.  

News10NBC spoke with Childers at a vigil a few days after Niles and Washburn were gunned down. "It's not something that you ever want to find out, the most I have to say to ya'll is justice needs to be served. My kids need that closure because 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," she said.

A man, Childers claims on social media to be very close with, now sits in a jail cell in Texas.  

Wayne County Sheriff Barry Virts told News10NBC via email on Monday, "Our investigation regarding the Monday, Oct. 22 double homicide in the Village of Sodus has and will continue. I have no other comments at this time as I do not want to compromise our ongoing investigative efforts."
