Police have charged a woman they say helped a central Pennsylvania man flee to New Jersey after he killed his girlfriend and her mother earlier this summer.

Amber Faye Foultz was charged Tuesday with hindering apprehension and other counts for allegedly helping 23-year-old Gary Gerlach flee to Wildwood, N.J. following the killings of Makenzie Hess and her mother, Mona Hess, on June 15.

Gerlach was arrested two days after the bodies of mother and daughter were found in their Leola home. Investigators say Makenzie Hess was strangled and her mother beaten with a hammer.

The Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era reports Foultz is in York County Prison on unrelated charges and will be transferred to Lancaster County for arraignment.

Court records don't list an attorney for Foultz.
