True crime TV show to focus on Conley poisoning case

Posted

The true crime television show “True Crime Story: It Couldn’t Happen Here” will air an episode focusing on the Kaitlyn Conley poisoning case on Sundance TV on Thursday, Sept. 16.

The hour-long segment — entitled “Sauquoit, New York” — will first air at 10 p.m. The episode will then air in reruns multiple times.

Sundance TV is channel 625 on Spectrum Cable, channel 126 on Dish Network and channel 239 on DIRECTV.

In July 2015, Conley, now age 27, poisoned her boss, Dr. Mary L. Yoder, while working at Yoder’s Chiropractic Family Care in Whitesboro. Conley was not charged until nearly a year later after an extensive investigation. A mistrial was declared during Conley’s first trial in county court in early 2017, and then she was found guilty of first-degree manslaughter in a second trial in October 2017.

Conley is serving 23 years in prison at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility in Westchester County. She is eligible for parole in 2037.

Conley was recently denied an appeal in March.

“True Crime Story: It Couldn’t Happen Here” stars actor Hilarie Burton Morgan as she visits small towns where big crimes occurred. The show will focus on “an effort to shine a much-needed light on the unique ways in which crime impacts rural communities and their judicial systems,” according to SundanceTV.com.
