As Kaitlyn Conley’s defense attorney prepares for an appeal, her family and even a member of Mary Yoder’s family have started a “Free Kaitlyn Conley” movement.

On November 6, 24-year-old Conley of Sauquoit was convicted of first-degree manslaughter in the poisoning death of her chiropractor boss, Dr. Mary Yoder. Conley was initially charged with second-degree murder, but a jury found her not guilty of murder and instead convicted her on the added-on lesser charge of manslaughter.

Conley’s first trial ended with a hung jury in May. During her second trial, Conley’s defense claimed that Conley’s ex-boyfriend and Mary Yoder’s son, Adam Yoder, was the one who committed the crime.

A sign went up this week at the corner of Oneida Street and Pinnacle Road in Sauquoit, asking the public to write letters in support of Conley and send them to a P.O. box to help in the appeal process.

This morning Conley’s sisters appeared on “Keeler in the Morning” on WIBX, wearing "Free Katie Conley" shirts, and they were joined by Mary Yoder’s nephew, David King.

“Adam lived with me for about four to five months after Mary had passed,” King said. “In that time frame he had possession of Katie’s laptop, and he had had possession of Katie’s laptop for quite some time.”

King went on to say that the laptop was in Adam Yoder’s possession not just for a couple days, but for a couple of years. King testified in Conley’s murder trial.

Conley is currently being held in the Oneida County Jail while she awaits sentencing, which is scheduled for January 11.
