Edward Laraby May Never Stand Trial

Rochester, N.Y. - The trial of a terminally ill man charged in the 1991 murder of Stephanie Kupchynsky, a Greecemusic teacher, may never move forward. Due to declining health Edward Laraby's trial has been postponed for 60 to 90 days but Monroe County District Attorney Sandra Doorley says that Laraby may not be able to stand trial.

"He is not able to be housed in the Monroe County jail for the pendency of the trial," Doorley says. "According to the state department of corrections it would take some man power to actually bring him every day from Wende to accommodate a trial. At this point it is probably safe to say that the trial will not go forward."

Laraby was supposed to be moved to the county jail, but the jail isn't equipped to give Laraby the critical medical care he needs.

Doorly says at this point she wishes to have an audio tape released to the community where he confesses to the murder.
