LITTLE VALLEY – Marylou Johnson, 73, of Busti, the woman charged in connection with the death of Busti man Wilfredo Colon-Rodriguez, Jr., 48, will appear in Cattaraugus County Court on Monday morning to take a plea.

A court clerk told WNYNewsNow Friday morning that it isn’t clear, however, what charges Johnson will be taking a plea for.

Colon-Rodriguez, Jr.’s body was found in Apr. 2018 on Swanson Hill Road in Randolph. Colon-Rodriguez, Jr. was previously reported missing to the Lakewood-Busti Police.

State Police charged Johnson in September with second-degree manslaughter, a class C felony; as well as second-degree vehicular manslaughter, second-degree assault, driving while intoxicated and leaving the scene of an incident without reporting serious physical injury, all class D felonies.

Johnson was also indicted by a Cattaraugus County Grand Jury on the charges.
