Corning murder suspects arraigned, trial date set
BATH, N.Y. (WENY) - The father-daughter pair accused in the murder of Corning resident, Michele Neurauter, were arraigned in separate appearances Monday.
Lloyd Neurauter, Michele's ex-husband, and Karrie Neurauter, Michele's daughter, are accused of killing Michele and staging it as a suicide.
They both pleaded not guilty to the charges they're facing. Lloyd is facing nine charges, including 1st degree Murder. Karrie has been charged as an accomplice. She's facing four charges, including 2nd degree Murder.
Steuben County District Attorney Brooks Baker told WENY News last week that there was also a custody issue between Lloyd and Michele. It is details such as this one that lead him to believe the trial could be drawn out. He says, "My belief is this could be a relatively long trial. There's a lot of proof in this case, a lot of little bits and pieces so it could take a long time to put it all in."
The judge also issued ordered of protections Monday. They prevent Lloyd from seeing his three daughters, Karrie included, and his other ex-wife.
Baker says Karrie and Lloyd will be tried together unless one of their attorneys files a motion to sever and the judge grants it. That trial is tentatively set to start on September 24th.
