Jury finds Texas police chief guilty of murder in Sodus couple’s slaying

Local News

WAYNE COUNTY, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — The jury has found Timothy Dean, the Texas police chief charged in a double murder in Sodus, guilty of two counts of murder.

Dean was arrested last year after the double shooting of Joshua Niles and Amber Washburn on Carlton Street.

Prosecutors say a custody battle between Dean’s wife, Charlene Childers, and her ex-partner, Niles, let to the murder plot.

In court, Dean’s wife testified against him, saying after losing custody of her kids to Niles, she told Dean something had to be done.

Both Childers and Bohlar previously pleaded guilty to charges connected to the deaths.
