Authorities say he confessed to the cold-case murder of a Greece music teacher, but it now appears Edward Laraby will never be convicted of the crime.
Laraby, already serving life in prison for rape and attempted murder, suffers from Lou Gehrig's disease. It's that illness that is keeping him from being brought back for a trial. He's charged with the murder of Stephanie Kupchynsky, of Greece.
Laraby's murder trial was scheduled to begin in less than three weeks, but it's been pushed back, at least, until November and his condition is only expected to deteriorate. Meaning, he will likely die of his disease without a jury ever hearing his case.
When I-Team 10's Brett Davidsen met Edward Laraby at Wende Correctional Facility in January, the effects of the Lou Gehrig's disease were evident. He is confined to a wheelchair, unable to use his arms or legs and has difficulty speaking.
