The wife of embattled outgoing Cohoes Mayor Shawn Morse is facing charges. Brenda Morse and her 17-year-old daughter are charged with shoplifting    

Police say they stole from a store in Colonie Center.    


Brenda Morse wrote a letter admitting in March she lied about domestic abuse by her husband. She said her opioid addiction caused her to lie about it.    

Shawn Morse lost the Democratic primary for re-election last month to former State Police Troop G Maj. Bill Keeler.
