Three months after she was convicted of first-degree manslaughter, 24-year-old Kaitlyn Conley of Sauquoit has been sentenced to 23 years in state prison.
Conley was sentenced Thursday, Jan. 11 in Oneida County Court. Following her prison sentence, Conley will also serve five years of post-release supervision.
Conley was convicted of poisoning her chiropractor boss, Dr. Mary Yoder, to death in 2015 using the common gout medicine Colchicine. Conley worked as a receptionist and office manager for the Yoder family’s chiropractic office in Whitesboro, and she also dated her boss’s son, Adam Yoder, on and off.
In court on Thursday, Adam Yoder, his two sisters and his father all read victim impact statements. Mary Yoder’s sister read a statement on behalf of Conley, who she claims is innocent.
Conley also proclaimed her own innocence in court on Thursday, saying the justice system had failed.
