Alleged killer jailed as case awaits Saratoga County grand jury

Alleged killer jailed as case awaits Saratoga County grand jury

The man accused of strangling his wife late last month will remain in jail until his case can be presented to a grand jury within the next month and a half.

Malta Town Court Judge James Fauci determined there is enough evidence against Charles Wilkinson to keep him incarcerated until his second-degree murder case can be reviewed in Saratoga County Court. The hourlong proceeding Wednesday in Town Court included testimony from Sheriff’s Office Investigator Rick Capasso, who attested the 68-year-old former Nassau County police officer gave a written statement to authorities after being read his Miranda warnings.

“The hearing today was the next step in the prosecution of the defendant and we will be presenting the murder case to the grand jury in the near future,” District Attorney James A. Murphy III said following the preliminary hearing. “As a former police officer, Mr. Wilkinson knows his rights and that is what the investigator testified about today in court.”

Wilkinson is accused of throttling his wife of 46 years in their Meadow Rue Place home May 30. A sheriff’s deputy discovered the body of Kathleen Wilkinson, 65, at the home after a family member living out of state asked authorities to check on her welfare.

Wilkinson remained in the home with the body of his wife for roughly 36 hours before the deputy arrived. He greeted the deputy at the door and reluctantly allowed him into the residence, at which time the wife’s body was found on the floor of a first-floor bedroom.

At the preliminary hearing, Wilkinson’s defense attorney did not call a witness. Wilkinson’s statement to investigators and his wife’s death certificate were admitted as evidence.
