GREENWOOD, Del.- Delaware State Police have arrested a woman in connection with the double homicide of Harvey and Carolyn Cashwell of Greenwood.

Christiana M. Evick, 31, of Delaware City, has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of robbery, four counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, second degree burglary and first-degree conspiracy. 

Police said Evick's arrest stemmed from an investigation that began on April 26, when troopers were called to the Cashwell's home on the 28000 block of Liden School Road in Greenwood. Concerned neighbors called State Police after they had not seen the elderly couple since April 22. 

Upon arriving at the home, troopers were unable to locate the couple. Troopers then made entry into the home where they found the bodies of 76-year-old Harvey Cashwell and his wife, 66-year-old Carolyn Cashwell. 

Through further investigation, police learned that Christiana Evick and her boyfriend, Michael P. Emory, had been evicted from a home they rented from the Cashwells approximately six months prior to their death. On April 27, 2012, Emory and Evick were taken into custody at the Greenwood Inn, leading to Emory's arrest. Emory is currently being held without bail at the Sussex County Correctional Institution. 

On Friday, December 21, Evick was brought to police by a relative where detectives obtained a warrant charging her with the first-degree murder and other offenses. She is currently being held without bail at Delores J. Baylor Women's Correctional Instutition.
