The New York State Court of Appeals will hear an appeal over a lower court’s reversal of Robert Neulander’s murder conviction, the Onondaga County District Attorney’s office told NewsChannel 9.
According to the State’s top Court the first brief, from the DA’s office, must be submitted in October.
Based on the briefing schedule it is likely oral arguments in the Court of Appeals won’t be heard until well into 2019.
Three years ago Neulander was convicted of murdering his wife, Leslie, back in 2012 and trying to cover it up.
Attorneys representing the former DeWitt doctor challenged the verdict on key points including insufficient evidence and jury misconduct.
The Appellate Division of State Supreme Court in Rochester overturned the conviction based on jury misconduct.
Juror No. 12 found herself in the spotlight after she was accused of texting about the case with family and friends.
Neulander is currently free on bail.
