Robert Neulander could face a life sentence in case of wife’s murder
A former doctor from Dewitt has been convicted in the death of his wife at their home in 2012. It took 18 hours before the jury was able to arrive at their verdict that 70-year-old Robert Neulander is guilty of killing Leslie Neulander.
Every juror was asked to confirm their decision in delivery of the final verdict. Neulander already spent three years in prison on a prior conviction that was overturned and had been released after posting $1 million bail.
Sentencing in the case is set for April 11 and Neulander could face upwards of 25 years to life in prison.
