Arrests Made in 2016 Williamsport Homicide


WILLIAMSPORT, LYCOMING COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — Two men have been charged with a homicide in Lycoming County that happened over two years ago.

James Rooks, 27, and Joseph Coleman Jr., 37, were charged with homicide in connection to the death of Christopher Wilkens in August of 2016.

Rooks was taken into custody Thursday. Coleman was already in prison, having been convicted one week ago in the double-murder of Kristin Kibler and Shane Wright.

Police say information from that murder investigation led to the charges in the Wilkens Murder Case.
