The former RIT student that pleaded guilty to helping her father kill her mother at her mom’s home in Corning last year was sentenced to 1 to-3 years in state prison Friday.
Karrie Neurauter pleaded guilty to a second-degree murder charge in exchange for a lesser sentence and to testify against her dad, Lloyd Neurauter, at all of his court appearances. Her dad pleaded guilty to all charges he faced prior to his trial beginning.
Karrie Neurauter told the court she was issued an ultimatum by Lloyd Neurauter, either assist him in killing Michelle Neurauter, to free him from the financial burden of alimony and child support, which would in turn give him custody of his youngest daughter, or he would kill himself. Karrie claimed she was not involved in the physical act of killing her mom, but drove her father to, and from, her mom’s home in Corning. While there, she disconnected electronic devices to hide her dad’s presence and distracted her younger sister while Lloyd Neurauter allegedly strangled his wife in an upstairs bedroom. The daughter also claimed she helped her dad stage the murder to make it look like a suicide.
Lloyd Neurauter was sentenced this week to life in prison without parole.
