Statement By Manhattan D.A. Alvin Bragg on Appellate Division Ruling In People V. Roderick Covlin

May 24, 2022

“Today’s Appellate Division ruling underscores what a Manhattan jury affirmed three years ago: there is overwhelming evidence that Roderick Covlin is guilty of intentionally killing his wife, Shele. This Office has long been committed to securing justice for Shele’s family, and I hope this decision helps give them closure as they continue to navigate through the grief surrounding her death. I thank my Office’s trial and appellate attorneys for their dedicated, tireless work on this case.”
