RIT student, father indicted on 13 felonies in 2017 murder
UPDATE (2/23): Corning Police say Lloyd Neurauter was brought to Corning Friday afternoon with members of the police department. He was taken to Steuben County Jail without bail. He is due back in court Monday.
Bath, N.Y. (WHAM) - Corning Police announced Thursday that a man accused of murdering his wife and staging it to look like a suicide has been indicted by a grand jury.
Lloyd Neurauter, 45, was indicted on nine felony counts, including first-degree murder, for the death of his ex-wife, Michele Neurauter, in August 2017. Michele was found dead at her apartment in Corning.
Lloyd signed a waiver of extradition Thursday and will be brought back to New York over the next few weeks. Until then, he is being held at the Mercer County Correctional Center in Hopewell, New Jersey.
The couple's daughter, 20-year-old Karrie Neurauter, was indicted on four felony counts Thursday, including second-degree murder. Family friends have said they believe Karrie, a fourth-year RIT student, may have been manipulated by her father.
In a news conference Thursday, authorities revealed to 13WHAM that there were custodial interference issues between Michele and her ex-husband. Corning Police also revealed that they had been called to Michele's Dwight Avenue residence about one dozen times in the last two years.
"There were disturbance calls between parent and child, disturbance calls between the wife and ex-husband and children versus children," said Corning Police Chief Jeff Spaulding.
"I don't know if we can ever find justice," said Steuben County District Attorney Brooks Baker. "What we can do is hope people become responsible for what they do. That is my goal."
Karrie is currently being held in the Steuben County Jail. Both Karrie and Floyd Neurauter are expected to be arraigned on Monday, February 26.
