Jury to Get Trappler Murder Case Tuesday

The jury will likely get the murder case of Alice Trappler in Schuyler County Court today.  In her closing arguments Monday,

Trappler's defense attorney Susan Betz-Jitomer said there's not enough evidence to convict the 41 year old Addison woman of 2nd degree murder charges. District Attorney Joseph Fazzary will begin his closing arguments shortly after 9 this morning.


Trappler is accused of arraigning the killing of her ex-boyfriend and father of her child, Daniel Bennett in the town of Dix last April.  Investigators say the shooter was Trappler’s ex-husband, 32-year-old Corning man Thomas Borden. Twenty-five-year-old Corning resident Nathan Hand, Borden’s stepbrother, participated in the killing and testified against Trappler in exchange for a 19-year prison sentence.

Borden was killed days after Bennett’s death when he jumped in front of a commuter train near Philadelphia as police moved in to apprehend him
