UTICA, N.Y. (AP) - Closing statements are being made in the murder trial of a central New York woman charged with fatally poisoning her boss two years ago.

The prosecution and 24-year-old Kaitlyn Conley’s defense attorney are making their summations Thursday in her second-degree murder trial in Oneida County Court in Utica.

Authorities say Conley was working as a receptionist in William and Mary Yoder’s chiropractic office in Whitesboro when she poisoned the woman with a drug used to treat gout. Mary Yoder fell ill and died in July 2015.

Her family later contacted police because they believed her death was suspicious. Conley was charged last June.

The defense has said Yoder was killed by her husband for money and because he was in a relationship with his wife’s sister.
