Kaitlyn Conley will have plenty of time to reflect on her crime.
The 24-year-old upstate New York woman has been sentenced to 23 years in prison for poisoning Mary Yoder, her former boss and ex-boyfriend’s mother, according to WKTV.
She was facing up to 25 years in prison when she appeared in Oneida County Court on Thursday and Friday.
Conley was convicted of first-degree manslaughter in November 2017.
She was initially charged with second-degree murder.
During the sentencing hearing, two of Yoder’s sisters pleaded with the judge to give Conley the highest possible sentence.
Her widow, William Yoder, and son, Adam Yoder, made the same request, according to WKTV.
William Yoder alleged that Conley “had a fight with my son…and then murdered his mother.”
He recalled his wife’s final days, which were spent suffering from vomiting episodes, diarrhea and coding in the hospital while doctors struggled to figure out what was wrong with her.
“We had to helplessly watch her die again and again. The pain of that last day will haunt me and my family for the rest of our lives,” William Yoder told the court.
