NORWICH – Following three days of jury selection, opening statements in the third trial of accused murderer Peter Wlasiuk were scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. today in the Chenango County Courthouse.

Originally charged with second degree murder in 2002, the former Oxford resident is accused of killing his wife, Patricia, and staging a Guilford Lake accident in an effort to cover up the crime. Wlasiuk has twice been convicted – in 2003 and 2008 – sentenced to serve 25 years to life in state prison.

Both convictions were overturned on appeal, in 2006 and 2011, respectively. The trial, according to acting Chenango County Judge Joseph F. Cawley Jr., is expected to take approximately one month.
