Sentencing for Wlasiuk still up in the air; costs mount for third murder trial

NORWICH – A sentencing date for Peter Wlasiuk remains up in the air, more than three months after the one-time Oxford resident and owner of the Angel Inn was convicted a third time for the murder of his wife, Patricia Wlasiuk.



On July 3, a Chenango County jury rendered a guilty verdict in the case, following nearly three days of deliberations. Wlasiuk was tried for a third time in June following two successful appeals of the second degree murder charge – in 2006 and 2008 – accused of murdering his wife at their Oxford home in April of 2002, later staging an accident at Guilford Lake to cover up the crime. According to Wlasiuk, his wife swerved to miss a deer before veering into the lake, while Chenango County District Attorney Joseph McBride has maintained that Patricia was already dead when her husband purposely sent his 1998 GMC pick-up truck into the icy waters.
