GOSHEN – A 17-year-old pled guilty in Orange County Court in Goshen on Wednesday to murdering an 81-year-old woman in her home last August.
Jennifer Molyneaux of the Town of Wallkill admitted to killing Helen Mills in her 84 Green Street, Goshen home.
“She admitted that she took part in a robbery case that resulted in the death of Helen Mills and during that she was under the influence of drugs and it was a pre-planned robbery where Miss Mills was killed and they set the building on fire to try to conceal the crime,” said District Attorney David Hoovler.
The case against an accomplice in the murder, Devin Giordano, 19, of the Village of Goshen, remains unresolved.
When sentenced in May, Molyneaux faces 25 years to life in state prison.
