      Remembering Deputy Kurt Wyman

      Oneida Sheriff's Deputy Kurt Wyman is being remembered today, on the third anniversary of his death in the line of duty

      Oneida County Sheriff's Deputy Kurt Wyman is being remembered this Saturday, the third anniversary of his death, in the line of duty.

      Deputy Wyman was part of a team at a standoff in Knoxboro. He was approaching the man, who'd been holed up in a garage, with orders to taze him, when the man fired and fatally wounded Wyman. Christian Patterson is now serving life in prison, with no possibility of parole.

      Wyman was a Marine Corps veteran who'd been with the Oneida County Sheriff's Department for four year. He had an 18-month old son at the time of his death, and when his wife heard the bad news she went into labor and gave birth to a daughter.

      Today's memorial, at 8:30am at the Law Enforcement Building on Judd Road in Oriskany, that has been named in honor of Wyman.
