Aaron Powell Waits for Second Trial in Wife’s Murder

Broome County Sheriff's Office
Broome County Sheriff’s Office

A Binghamton man, who recently had his murder conviction overturned on basis he did not have an unbiased jury, may not get a new trial for possibly months.

The New York State Supreme Court Appellate Division ruled August 10 that since a juror on Aaron Powell’s case was a partner in a law firm involved in a child custody battle between Powell and his former in-laws, the Binghamton man was not granted a fair trial.

Powell was convicted in 2014 of murdering Christina Powell and her friend, Mario Masciarelli in the woman’s home in 2013.

He has served three years of a life sentence in prison before getting word that he would be granted a new trial.  The proceedings for the 43 year old may not start until next year.
