UPDATE: James Prokopovitz, 75, the husband of missing Victoria Prokopovitz is standing trial on charges of 1st Degree Intentional Homicide, Resisting or Obstructing and Perjury.
According to WBAY: “Prosecutors say Prokopovitz killed his wife, Victoria. Her body has never been located. On April 25, 2013, Victoria disappeared from the Prokopovitz home in a rural area of Kunesh Road in the Town of Pittsfield. The prosecution states James had access to sludge ponds through his job loading paper waste for disposal at a landfill and those ponds would be a place to dispose of a body. The defense maintains Victoria had a history of mental illness and suicide attempts and argues she may have taken her own life.”
During the court procedures it is found out that James was having an affair with Kathryn Friday, 68, according to court documents. Friday was due in court to be sentenced in November for perjury charges but she died on Nov. 2, 2020.
