Pathologist testifies: death by asphyxiation

NORWICH – Only three testified Thursday as the sixth day of testimony in the third murder trial of Peter Wlasiuk continues.

Wlasiuk has twice been convicted of second degree murder, accused of killing his wife, Patricia, at the couple’s Oxford home. The Chenango County District Attorney’s Office alleges that Wlasiuk then engineered a Guilford Lake truck accident to cover up the crime. Both convictions have been successfully appealed in 2006 and 2011, respectively.
