A Kensington Avenue man is being held in Erie County Holding Center without bail on 13 charges in connection with the slaying of a Fillmore Avenue store employee and the wounding of another man.

Dwayne F. Miles, 34, of 1215 Kensington Ave. was arrested Sunday night on Winslow Avenue by Street Crime Unit Officers Paul Skinner and Robert Hill. He pleaded innocent during arraignment Monday before County Judge Joseph P. McCarthy.

The district attorney's office said Miles has been indicted in the March 28 slaying of Ray Dean, 36, of Woltz Avenue and the wounding of Leonard White, 33, of Winslow Avenue, who was shot in his stomach during the robbery of the Royce Deli, 1408 Fillmore Ave.

Dean was shot execution style in the back of the head, according to District Attorney Kevin M. Dillon.

An accomplice who hasn't been arrested is accused of shooting White in the stomach as the two were leaving the store about 7 p.m. The two are accused of making an "unsuccessful attempt to flee in White's vehicle," Dillon said.

Capt. Charles T. Fieramusca of the Homicide Bureau said the attack occurred shortly before 7:30 p.m. Miles was arraigned before Erie County Judge Joseph McCarthy on two counts of second-degree murder, two counts of first-degree assault, one count of attempted murder, four counts of first-degree robbery, two counts of second-degree robbery, one count of unauthorized use of a vehicle and one count of criminal possession of a weapon.
