A New York woman who survived her deputy husband’s murder-suicide despite being shot in the face and arm is now facing charges for allegedly helping the killer steal from the sheriff’s office where he was employed .

Karen Eames, 46, faces charges of grand larceny and criminal possession of stolen property, according to local outlets. She pleaded not guilty.

The suspects’ personal lives ended in blood and tragedy on February 7 at the family’s Onondaga County residence. Her husband, civil sheriff’s deputy Isaac Eames, 48, shot her. He also fatally shot her son Troy Eames 21 and the family dog. After that, the shooter died by suicide.

Authorities say Isaac Eames carried out the attack because his colleagues investigated him after a bank reported an attempted transfer of more than $40,000 from a sheriff’s bank account he controlled. The supposed goal? His personal bank account.

Officials claim the couple lived lavishly after deputy Eames made 13 transfers totaling more than $529,000, according to WSTM. They reportedly played, brought land, built a house, and took trips to destinations like Niagara Falls, Disney World in Orlando, Florida, and beaches in Delaware.

The withdrawals were made as part of a civil account used for frequent deposits and withdrawals, such as B. garnished wages, was used, hidden in plain sight.

“His intent in doing this was sheer greed,” the Onondaga County Sheriff said Gene Conway said. “We have no evidence, no indication that there were any medical issues or situations that would require money or he would need money.”

But prior to that February 7, there was no indication that the deputy would attack his family and take his own life.

“This has to happen,” according to the sheriff, Isaac Eames said before shooting his wife.

Troy Eames was remembered in his obituary as a “kind” and caring young man:

Inside this tall, strong young man lived a kind, loving and sensitive soul. He always wanted to please people and cared about everyone he loved. He will be sorely missed but will always be remembered as “Mama’s Boy”.

The investigation is ongoing, and Conway says there’s no evidence Isaac Eames stole grant funds he oversaw.

This leaves Ms. Karen the only person responsible for the alleged thefts.

“In the past few months, she has had to endure one of the most horrific tragedies that I believe any person can endure,” the attorney said Michael Vavonese said. “With the death of her son Troy, the death of her husband Isaac, the extreme injuries she sustained and the death of her pet, all at the hands of her husband.”

He suggested that there might be an innocuous explanation for his client’s alleged involvement.

“I sincerely hope that as we go through this we find that there is some misinterpretation or confusion of events,” he said, according to WSYR.
