District Attorney Scott McNamara Explains Kaitlyn Conley Guilty Verdict
During an exclusive interview with WIBX's Bill Keeler, Oneida County District Attorney Scott McNamara discussed the trial of Kaitlyn Conley, the verdict and how his office will combat the appeal, promised by defense attorney Frank Policelli.
McNamara answers questions about the Conley investigation, why he feels the lesser charge of 1st degree manslaughter will stand up on appeal and why he thinks Conley ultimately killed Mary Yoder.
The retrial of Kaitlyn Conley ended in a conviction later Monday, November 6th, after jurors came back with a message for the judge claiming they were 'hung' by a margin of 10-2. The judge gave jurors the Allen Charge and sent them back to deliberate. Two hours later, the jury sent a message to the court that they had reached a verdict.
Conley was being retried for the 2015 poisoning murder of chiropractor Mary Yoder. The first trial ended with a hung jury.
