Woman suspect in custody for killing Lyndonville wife and mother

LYNDONVILLE, N.Y. (WKBW) - The Monroe County Sheriff's Office is reporting that a woman suspect has been taken into custody for the shooting death of 33-year-old Megan Duncanson Dix from Lyndonville.

During a press conference, the Brockport Police Chief announced that 31-year-old Holly Marie Colino, from Arizona, has been charged with second degree murder.

The police chief went on to say that Dix did nothing to warrant this crime, she was in the "wrong place at the wrong time."

According to police, Colino was picked up on Monday night in Henrietta for a different crime.

Police say Colino had previously lived in Brockport and came back to the area a few days prior to the homicide.

At Colino's arraignment on Tuesday, she pleaded not guilty and is being held without bail.

Dix was fatally shot to death during a lunch break from her job at the Brockport Lowes on Friday August 25, 2017.  Her body was found in the drivers seat of a pickup truck that was parked near a footpath area not far from the Lowes store.  Police said she had suffered a fatal gunshot wound to the head.

The shooting death left Dix's family and the community of Lyndonville in shock as Megan Dix came from a family that was well-known and respected in the small tight-knit community.  Dix was married and had an 8-year-old son.

A gofundme account set up by Dix's family has almost reached its $15,000 goal. The family says money will be used in part to pay for her son's education.
