Two men charged with homicide in Wilkes-Barre

Police say Charles Bierly and James Alberto conspired to kill Judi Comisky.

WILKES-BARRE, Pa. — Two men are behind bars on homicide charges in Wilkes-Barre.

Police say that Charles Bierly and James Alberto, both of Wilkes-Barre, conspired to kill 52-year-old Judi Comisky.

Investigators say Comisky was found on the kitchen floor of a home along Willow Street earlier this month, stabbed to death.

Alberto was Comisky's former roommate and believed she was working with police, so he allegedly coerced Bierly to kill the woman.

"The reason that we made two arrests is that the evidence revealed that the murder was actually arranged by conspiracy. Because one of the conspirators falsely believed that miss Comisky was participating in an investigation with police. Although most murders and any acts of violence are senseless, this particular act was not only senseless but irrational," said Sam Sanguedolce, District Attorney.

Both men are locked up without bail.
