UTICA, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - A jury in Oneida County told a judge on Thursday that it will “never reach a unanimous verdict” in the trial of a Sauquoit woman accused of using gout medicine to poison and kill her boss.
The judge decided to send the jurors to lunch, and asked them to return to deliberations after that.
However, on Thursday afternoon, the judge declared a mistrial.
Kaitlyn Conley was accused of fatally poisoning her boss two years ago.
Prosecutors say Conley gave 60-year-old Dr. Mary Louise Yoder a deadly dose of gout medication.
If she was convicted, Conley was looking at 25 years to life in prison.
