Local News

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Former doctor Robert Neulander will not be appearing in court on Friday, as prosecutors originally reported.

NewsChannel 9 has learned that Onondaga County Court Judge Thomas Miller has instead scheduled a phone call on Friday morning with attorneys to discuss the next steps in the case, as he awaits a new trial.

Neulander was convicted in 2015 of killing his wife, Leslie, at their DeWitt home, but juror misconduct prompted an appellate court to grant Neulander a new trial last June.

Onondaga County District Attorney Bill Fitzpatrick appealed that decision to the state’s highest court, which handed down its decision late last month, unanimously agreeing that Neulander deserved a new trial

He remains free on bail.
