NY - Dr. Mary Yoder, 60, fatally poisoned, Whitesboro, 22 July 2015
A 23-year-old Oneida County woman has been charged with second-degree murder for poisoning her boss, a local chiropractor, Oneida County Sheriff Robert Maciol announced today.
The woman charged is Kaitlyn Conley, Oneida Street, Sauquoit, the sheriff said.
She is accused of killing Mary Louise Yoder, 60. She died July 22, 2015.
Conley used colchicine, an anti-inflammatory drug sometimes used to treat gout, to poison Yoder, the sheriff said.
In Yoder’s obituary, which ran in the Observer-Dispatch, a “Katie Conley” is identified as as a loved one of one of Yoder’s children. Nelson described Conley as “close to the family”...
According to the Oneida County grand jury indictment that charged Conley with second-degree murder, in addition to two counts of first-degree falsifying business records, second-degree forgery and two counts of misdemeanor petit larceny, Conley reportedly wrote a Letter of Intent in January 2015 to “ArtChemicals and/or Spectrum Chemicals” to purchase Colchicine.

I was just reading about this in the Daily Mail. I wonder what the motive was. Strange.
I could never kill anyone, but it seems that poisoning is the most painful way for someone to die. Can't imagine inflicting that kind of harm in anyone.

There might be your motive. From the DM link above:
The Oneida County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday: 'Kaitlyn Conley was an employee of Dr. William and Mary Yoder who owned and operated Chiropractic Family Care located on Oriskany Boulevard Whitesboro, NY. Conley was employed there at the time of Dr. Mary Yoder's death.'
Conley, 23, is being held in the county jail.
The sheriff's office said that Conley was charged with one count of second-degree forgery, two counts of first-degree falsifying business records, and two counts of petit larceny.

The details are strange because this young woman was very close to the family and her employer. Apparently, it only took one dose to poison the doctor. But why would she do that?
23-year-old accused of poisoning CNY boss mourned her death online: 'I'm devastated'
"I'm devasted,'' Katie Conley wrote on her Facebook page July 23, 2015 - the day after Yoder's death. "It's so hard.
"If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever,'' she said in another post. . "Dr. Mary - I still can't believe you're gone."Conley is accused of poisoning Yoder, 60, with colchicine, a drug sometimes used to treat gout, he said. Deputies said she was given a single deadly dose.Conley worked for Yoder for four years at the Chiropractic Family Care offices on Oriskany Boulevard in Whitesboro. Yoder and her husband, William, have operated the practice for 28 years.
It also has emerged today that Conley was the on-again, off-again girlfriend of the Yoders' son, Adam, but they were just friends at the time of the arrest,...
Conley talked about Mary Louis Yoder on July 23, 2015 on her Facebook:
"Yesterday was so sudden. You truly were a positive light in the world and I'm so lucky and thankful our lives crossed paths. There wasn't a day I didn't look forward to work with you.
"You taught me so much and had such a profound impact on my life. Everyone appreciated your attention, stories, and laughter....

Katie Conley, Sauquoit woman accused of murdering employer, posts bail
Investigators say Conley obtained colchicine legally, in a purer form they referred to as 'research grade.' They wouldn't say how they believe Conley administered the drug to Mary Yoder.

I hope we'll be able to follow the details of this case. It sounds premeditated. Shocking, if she did this to cover up some other lesser crimes.
Lisi added that Conley planned her boss's murder for 10 months, and that the 23-year-old tried to blame one of Yoder's own family members.
"It is also the people's position that the evidence will show that Kaitlyn Conley deliberately attempted to frame Mary Yoder's son, Adam Yoder, for this heinous crime."

Kaitlyn Conley's Poisoning Her Boss 'Thought Out': Prosecutor
Kaitlyn Conley has been charged with poisoning her chiropractor boss in what a prosecutor said was a nearly year-long "well thought out" plan to frame the doctor's son.

Conley had an on-again, off-again relationship with Yoder's son, Adam, according to prosecutors, and is accused of trying to frame him for his mother's death...
Colchicine has been used in at least one other murder. In 1992, Debra Rogers of Louisville, Kentucky, poisoned her husband with the drug... Other than that, Milman said it's an uncommon drug to use in poisoning cases.
It's also not a drug doctors would typically screen for when someone presents with symptoms it causes, he said.
