The man charged in the deaths of a Wayne County mother and her baby last year had been indicted on federal charges.
Alberto Reyes, also known as Everardo Donoteo-Reyes, has been indicted on charges of fraud and misuse of a permanent resident alien card, fraud and misuse of a Social Security card and unlawful re-entry by a removed alien.
Prosecutors say Reyes was in the country illegally, after being previously removed, when he was arrested by the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office in the murder case.
Reyes was taken into custody last May after the body of 18-year-old Selena Hidalgo-Calderon was found wrapped in plastic in a wooded area off Joy Road in Sodus.
The body was found as deputies searched for Hidalgo-Calderon and her son Owen after a missing person report was issued in May. Reyes was arrested and initially charged with tampering with evidence for moving Selena’s body — something deputies say he admitted to in interviews — but was later charged with two counts of murder after police located the body of Owen months later.
Deputies believe Reyes murdered the mother and son at a farm on Joy Road and then hid their bodies in the wooded area. However, the sheriff hasn’t released any details on how Selena and Owen were killed.
Reyes denied any role in the death of Selena.
