Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – An Onondaga County Court hearing for a convicted killer was postponed on Thursday.
Stacey Castor was convicted in 2009 on charges of murders in the second degree, attempted murder in the second degree, and offering a false instrument for filing in the first degree.
Castor poisoned her husband, David Castor, with anti-freeze and also tried to kill her daughter, Ashley Wallace, by offering her a cocktail laced with drugs.
Stacy Castor also wrote a false suicide note for her daughter, which stated that her daughter had killed both her father and stepfather.
On Oct. 5, the state Appellate Court issued a ruling on Stacey Castor’s appeal
. But her conviction has not been overturned and Castor remains in prison.
When Castor gave her fingerprints to police in September 2007, officers contacted her estate attorney. Because that attorney was not representing her in the case, Castor argued her right to council had been violated.
The Appellate Court stated that there should be a hearing in Onondaga County Court to consider that motion in her appeal.
Castor’s hearing was rescheduled for Jan. 15.
