Suspect in slaying of woman, baby appears in court

The man accused of murdering a woman and her baby in Wayne County appeared in court Tuesday afternoon.

The hearing was adjourned but not before Alberto Reyes renewed his request for a new attorney. Reyes was indicted on two counts of murder last month.

Deputies say he killed his girlfriend Selena Hidalgo-Calderon and her 14-month-old son Owen.

The two disappeared from a farm off of Joy Road in Sodus in May of last year.

Hidalgo-Calderon’s body was found a week later in some woods. Owen’s remains were found at the same farm in October. Wayne County deputies have said Reyes admitted to burying Hidalgo-Calderon’s body at the Sodus farm and was captured on a trail camera walking in and out of the woods with a shovel. Immigration officials have said Reyes was in the country illegally and had been deported twice.

Reyes, 26, is also facing an evidence tampering charge.
