Couple Charged in Teen's Death



Castile, NY (WBEN) A 15 year old girl's death back in January has led to charges against two people.
Wyoming County Sheriff's deputies say they responded to call of a 15 year old girl having a seizure.

The girl died the next day at Women and Children's Hospital in Buffalo.

An Autopsy was conducted by the Erie County Medical Examiner’s Office and on May 2, 2014, the results came back as Homicide due to Medical Neglect.  The child was not receiving proper care and medication for an existing condition.



A grand jury has indicted 35 year old Jeremy Ikeler and 38 year old Astrid Ikeler (pictured above) from Route 39 in Castile for Criminally Negligent Homicide.   Both were arrested and arraigned in Wyoming County Court where they were both committed to the Wyoming County Jail on $5000.00 bail. Both will reappear in county court on October 23rd.
