Kaitlyn Conley convicted of first-degree manslaughter

Kaitlyn Conley has been found guilty of first-degree manslaughter and not guilty of the initial second-degree murder charge.

The jury announced they had reached a verdict around 4 p.m. on Monday, after two days of deliberations.

Conley of Sauquoit, NY, was arrested on June 13th, 2016, indicted by an Oneida County Grand Jury and charged with poisoning her boss Dr. Mary Yoder in July 2015 using the common gout medicine Colchicine, causing Yoder's death.

Dr. Mary Yoder and her husband, Dr. William Yoder, DC, owned and operated Chiropractic Family Care on Oriskany Boulevard in Whitesboro, where Conley worked at the front desk for 4 years.

The verdict comes in the second trial for Conley, the first trial in May 2017 failed to reach a verdict after five days of deliberating, resulting in the need for a retrial.

Her bail has been revoked and she will be sent to the Oneida County Jail awaiting sentencing scheduled for Jan. 11, 2018.
