Attorneys argue timing of Miranda rights for woman charged in Sodus double-homicide

Attorneys gathered in court Tuesday for a hearing about one of the suspects accused in the murder of a Sodus couple last fall.

Charlene Childers is one of three people charged in connection to the murders of Joshua Niles and Amber Washburn.

Childers was the mother of two of Niles’ children; those children were living with Niles and Washburn in Sodus.

On October 22, Childers’ husband, Timothy Dean, allegedly shot Niles and Washburn dead. Both are charged with murder.

During the hearing in Wayne County Court on Tuesday, attorneys went over the accounts of witnesses and law enforcement on the day Childers became a suspect in the murder investigation.

Approximately one week after the murders, investigators said Childers was brought into the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office for questioning. At one point during the interview, one detective said Childers revealed that she was involved in renting a car that was allegedly used as part of the murder plot. It was at that point, the detective said, that he realized Childers could be involved in the murders.
