NYC man faces charges in the death of 2 children, mother

NEW YORK (AP) — A New York City man now faces charges in the deaths of his two children and their mother.

Shane Walker pleaded not guilty on Wednesday.

He was initially indicted in the June death of Alla Ausheva. An updated indictment was issued after an autopsy determined that 2-year-old Ivan and 3-year-old Elia Walker were drowned.

Ausheva served with the Army and Air National Guard. The Russian immigrant became an American citizen at a 2012 White House ceremony. Walker also was a guardsman.

The Staten Island Advance reports that about a dozen National Guard members in camouflage uniforms attended the hearing.

According to a court document, Walker told detectives that he confronted and strangled Ausheva after finding the children lifeless in the bathtub. She also was stabbed.

Walker’s lawyer had no comment.
