The New Jersey man accused of murdering his ex-wife in Corning last August is facing a new charge after he and his sister allegedly attempted to bribe a witness in the case.
Lloyd Neurauter and his sister, Wendy Bonilla, are accused of conspiring and agreeing to attempt to influence the testimony of a witness in Neurauter’s murder case by offering a benefit to that witness in exchange for changing previous testimony to favor the 46 year old’s defense. According to the Steuben County District Attorney’s office, the prospective witness turned down the alleged deal.
Neurauter, and his sister, who was arrested in California Monday, are charged with felony attempted bribery of a witness and conspiracy. He pleaded not guilty in Steuben County Court and was sent back to Livingston County Jail. Bonilla has waived extradition to New York.
Karrie Neurauter, the 20 year old RIT student accused of helping her father kill her mother at her Michelle Neurauter’s home in Corning last August, pleaded guilty to a charge of second-degree murder in March in exchange for a lesser sentence. Her deal calls for her to testify against her father.
