COXSACKIE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) – Gary Thibodeau’s defense attorney Lisa Peebles tells NewsChannel 9 that the 64-year-old is not expected to survive through the weekend.
Peebles cited Thibodeau’s rapidly deteriorating health.
She said she saw him on Wednesday, and “it was apparent he did not have much longer to live.”
Thibodeau has been wheelchair-bound for a while and appears frail.
Thibodeau is serving a 25-year to life sentence in state prison for kidnapping Heidi Allen in 1994.
Last month, his team filed yet another appeal on his behalf.
In June, the Court of Appeals struck down Thibodeau’s chances for a new trial in a 4-3 decision.
