ROME, N.Y. – Jason D’Avolio, the Rome man accused of killing his wife in July, rejected a plea offer in Oneida County Court on Wednesday.

D’Avolio, 47, pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder and concealment of a human corpse in September. His attorney requested more time to consider the plea deal during his last court appearance on Oct. 2.

The body of Kerilee D’Avolio was found in the Ava landfill on July 30, after police say she was murdered and placed in a dumpster.
