A Rochester man with a history of sex crimes has been accused of murder in the May killing of a woman in the city.

Anthony Edwards, 61, was charged Thursday with second-degree murder in an indictment unsealed in Monroe County Court. He is now in state custody for a parole violation.

Edwards is accused of murdering 57-year-old Gail Neals, whose body was found near Skuse Street. The man who discovered the body and alerted police said she was nude, a claim not confirmed by police.

Records show that Edwards was convicted of first-degree rape and burglary in 1978. He served his full sentence, and was released in 2003.

Edwards is a level three sex offender, considered the most dangerous level.

Parolee Charged in Latest Homicide Arrest, Renewing Community Debate
Updated Thursday, October 29, 2015 at 06:43 PM EDT

ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- Rochester police have arrested a man in connection with a homicide on Hudson Avenue in May 2015.

Anthony Edwards, 61, of Rochester, is charged with second degree murder. Police said he killed Gail Neals, 57, of Rochester. Her body was found below the railroad bridge along Hudson Avenue on May 7, in an area often used as a homeless community.

At the time of the murder, Edwards was a level three sex offender and on parole for an attempted sexual abuse in the first degree conviction from 2011, according to authorities. He served time in Wende Correctional Facility and was released to parole in January 2015.

Edwards was arraigned Thursday afternoon and ordered held in state custody.

Edwards is the latest in a series of parolees accused of a high-profile violent crime in Rochester following their release.

A new law recently went into effect preventing parolees from being releases on a Friday. It's believed that will prevent them from committing other crimes before they would report to their supervisors the following Monday.

That law didn't go into effect in time to keep Korane Womack from allegedly sexually assaulting a woman Sunday, Oct. 18 in the Area of Avenue D, just two days after being paroled. Court paperwork says Womack attempted to assault another woman who got away.

Michael Caruthers was sentenced in September to spend 75 years to life after being convicted of raping a 14-year-old girl. That happened on a Saturday near the Liberty Pole, one day after he was released on parole.

ROCHESTER, N.Y. Michael Caruthers will spend at least the next 75 years in prison. That would make Caruthers 108 years old if he lives long enough to ever be paroled.

Monroe County Court Judge James Piampiano imposed the maximum sentence Wednesday on Caruthers for raping a 14-year-old girl in broad daylight last year, just a day after he was released from prison on a robbery conviction.

Caruthers received 25 years to life on six counts of rape and criminal sex act, some of which will run consecutively.
