NORWICH, N.Y. (AP) - A state appeals court has ordered a new trial for an upstate New York man convicted of killing his wife four years ago.

The Press & Sun-Bulletin of Binghamton reports (https://press.sn/29SBhJM ) the mid-level Appellate Division determined 41-year-old Ganesh Ramsaran received “ineffective assistance” from his defense lawyer during his trial for the slaying of 36-year-old Jennifer Renz Ramsaran.

The case will be sent back to Chenango County Court for a new trial.

Ramsaran, a former IBM program manager, was convicted of second-degree murder in September 2014. His wife, the mother of their three children, disappeared in December 2012. Her frozen body was found three months later in a field near the family’s rural home.

Prosecutors said Ramsaran was having an affair with another woman when he killed his wife.
