SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Robert Neulander, the former doctor who was convicted in 2015 of killing his wife, Leslie, in their DeWitt home, will have to appear in Onondaga County Court on November 22nd. Judge Thomas Miller provided no information as to what the court appearance would be about.
Earlier this week, Judge Miller scheduled a phone call with attorneys to discuss the next steps in the case.
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.
Neulander remains free on bail. A new trial is expected to begin next spring.
