A 24-year-old New York woman convicted of manslaughter was sentenced to time behind bars after she poisoned her ex-boyfriend’s mother.

According to the Utica Observer-Dispatch, Kaitlyn Conley was handed a 23-year prison sentence in the killing of Mary Yoder, who was her employer at a chiropractic clinic in Whitesboro, New York.

Conley had two words for the court before receiving her sentence: “I’m innocent.”

She had faced anywhere from five to 25 years in prison for the manslaughter conviction.

Conley was a receptionist for the 60-year-old woman and was involved in a tumultuous relationship with her son, Adam when she poisoned her.

Investigators said that Conley used colchicine, a drug used to treat gout, to murder the woman in 2015.

Before she was sentenced, Adam Yoder blamed himself for the loss of his mother.

“Make no mistake — as much as I hate her, which is more than I thought I would be capable of hating anyone, I hate myself more,” he said on Thursday. “I introduced her to my family. I got her a job with my parents. If I hadn’t done those things, my mother would still be alive.”

The chiropractor’s husband, William Yoder, said that the jilted murderer wanted revenge against his son.

“To get even with my son, she murdered his mother,” he said.

Conley contended on Thursday that she was not involved in the poisoning, claiming: “I’m innocent.”
