Wlasiuk trial set to begin April 30

NORWICH – Twice-convicted murderer Peter Wlasiuk returned to the Chenango County Courthouse Friday and Broome County’s Judge Martin E. Smith – acting judge in the case against the former Guilford resident – announced a trial date of April 30 following a brief scheduling conference with attorneys.



It was Wlasiuk’s first appearance in court since the New York State Supreme Court’s Appellate Division upheld his second appeal in the death of his wife, Patricia Wlasiuk, whose body was recovered from Guilford Lake in April of 2002.

The trial is scheduled to run from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday beginning on April 30, reported Smith, who also scheduled three panels for jury selection in the case. Wlasiuk, dressed in an orange prison jumpsuit, appeared with his attorney – Binghamton-based Mark Loughran – and was remanded to the Chenango County Correctional Facility pending his third trial for second degree murder in connection with Patricia’s death.
