SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - A judge has set bail at $1 million cash for an upstate New York doctor whose murder conviction was overturned in the 2012 death of his wife.

The Post-Standard of Syracuse reports that bail was set Monday morning for 66-year-old Robert Neulander at $1 million cash and $2 million bond. His lawyer said after court she believed he would make bail.

Neulander was sentenced to 20 years to life in prison in 2015 after a jury found he killed his wife, Leslie, in the couple's Syracuse-area home.

A divided state appeals court last month ruled that the trial judge incorrectly affirmed the guilty verdict despite juror misconduct.

A juror had acknowledged receiving biased texts during the trial.

Neulander is expected to face trial again.
