UTICA, N.Y. -- A New York woman convicted of manslaughter for the 2015 poisoning death of her boss has been sentenced to 23 years in prison.

According to WKTV, Kaitlyn Conley, of Sauquoit, said Thursday in Oneida County Court that she is innocent.

Authorities say Conley, a receptionist in a Whitesboro chiropractic office, obtained an anti-inflammatory drug and used it to poison Dr. Mary Yoder.

She was acquitted of the more serious charge of second-degree murder.
