Three People Charged in Murder of Tonawanda Mother and Buffalo Murders
Three people have been charged in connection to the murder of a young mother in North Tonawanda and the murders of two other people in Buffalo.
Police have arrested three suspects in the murder of Danielle Cretacci in the Town of Tonawanda, according to WKBW. Danielle was killed in her home on Ebling Avenue and her two children were injured in the attack. The shooting happened on August, 27, 2019. The Erie County District Attorney's office made the announcement on Friday, November 14, 2020. The three suspects allegedly broke into Danielle's home and forced her and her children into the living room, where all three were shot. Danielle was shot in the back of her head, while her children were shot in their torsos. Her older daughter played dead until the suspects left.
The three suspects, Ernest B. Green Jr., Daniel Rodriguez and Sharee Bailey, have been charged second degree murder. Green and Rodriguez face an additional charge of attempted murder for shooting Danielle's children. The D.A.'s office says Bailey was the mastermind behind the horrific crime. The movie was robbery, according to officials. Danielle had had received a legal settlement and told people about the money. Authorities allege that this was not the first time Green and Baily committed this type of murder for money. They've both been charged in connection to the murders of Bethany Malloy and Shaquiel St. John, who were killed on September 27, 2019 in Buffalo. District Attorney Flynn said Mallory had told people about settlement money that she was due to receive, but had not yet received. Green, Bailey and another man, Wayne Robbins, are charged with first degree murder and second degree murder in that case.
According to a release from the D.A.'s office,
All three defendants were held without bail. A return court date has not been scheduled at this time. If convicted on all charges, Green and Rodriguez face a maximum 75 years to life in prison. If convicted of the charge, Bailey faces a maximum of 25 years to life in prison.
