Colino appears in court after grand jury indictment_88369490

Holly Colino, the woman accused of murdering a mother in Brockport in August, was arraigned Thursday morning. 

Defense attorney Mark Foti began representing Colino Thursday morning. Foti says he has not been able to review much of the evidence that was turned over from the District Attorney’s Office, which is why he deferred to Judge Charles Schiano to enter a not guilty plea for Colino.

Colino, 31, is facing nine charges for her alleged involvement in the death of 33-year-old Megan Dix. Colino is charged with murder in the second-degree, five counts of criminal possession of a weapon in the second-degree, criminal possession of a weapon in the third-degree, escape in the second-degree, and menacing in the second-degree.

Prosecutors say there is a lot of evidence in the case from the Brockport Police and Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, including body camera footage and interviews with investigators.

“The cooperation between the two departments and the way that the evidence has been able to come together and been presented to myself and Ms. Hahn, moving forward we look forward to presenting it at trial,” Assistant District Attorney Perry Duckles said. 

“There’s obviously going to be a thorough investigation going forward into all the details of this case, and the nature to any potential witnesses or any victims in any stage of the incident,” Foti said. “Those are things that have to be explored further.”

Foti says this will be a very complicated proceeding. Colino’s mental state has not been discussed openly in court, but Foti says it will certainly be under consideration as the case proceeds.

Attorneys will reconvene for a pre-trial conference on Sept. 22.
