SODUS, N.Y. (AP) — Murder charges were filed against a Texas woman accused along with her husband of killing two people in upstate New York.
Charlene Childers was arraigned Wednesday in Wayne County, New York court on second-degree murder charges.
She has been held in jail since being charged with conspiracy and weapon possession in last month’s fatal shootings of Amber Washburn and Joshua Niles, Childers’ ex-boyfriend.

Childers pleaded not guilty to murder.
Messages left with Childers’ and Dean’s lawyers were not returned.
Washburn and Niles were shot Oct. 22 outside the home they shared in Sodus.
