About 50 witnesses are slated to testify in the murder trial of Kaitlyn Conley next week.

Conley, 24, of Sauquoit, is accused of poisoning her boss, local chiropractor Dr. Mary Yoder, to death in 2015. Conley was arrested for Yoder's murder in 2016.

Many of the details of what happened in between will likely come out during Conley's trial, which is expected to last two to three weeks in Oneida County Court. It will be a working weekend for the attorneys.

"I have two assistants that are assigned to the case. The lead prosecutor, Laurie Lisi, basically it's all she's done for the past six months," said Oneida County District Attorney Scott McNamara.

Conley worked for the Yoder family Chiropractic office in Whitesboro for four years. Prosecutors have said that they plan to prove at trial that she not only used a gout medicine, Colchicine, to murder the doctor, but also attempted to frame the doctor's son, Adam Yoder, for his mother's murder.

Family members raised concerns after Yoder died suddenly.

Jury selection begins Monday and is expected to last into Tuesday, as roughly twice the amount of potential jurors that would normally be brought in were summoned. This, in part, because of the lengthy time commitment, which would be a hardship for many.

Opening arguments are expected to begin Tuesday afternoon, with the first witness expected to take the stand on Wednesday.
