Indictment in connection with body found in Liberty Cemetery

Posted

LIBERTY, NY —  Sullivan County District Attorney Meagan Galligan and Village of Liberty Police Chief Steven D'Agata announced the indictment of Kenneth Alger III, 38, by a Sullivan County Grand Jury for Manslaughter in the Second Degree. The indictment alleges that, on or about February 28th, 2022, Alger intentionally caused and aided Amanda Alger, 31, to commit suicide.

Amanda Alger’s body was discovered by Village of Liberty Police Offices on Wednesday, March 2, in a secluded area of the Liberty Cemetery on Cold Spring Road in the Village of Liberty. Village of Liberty police, together with members of the New York State Police and Sullivan County District Attorney’s Office, conducted an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death and the Grand Jury returned an indictment in the case on Wednesday, March 9.

Kenneth Alger was arraigned before Sullivan County Court Judge Jim Farrell on Thursday, March 10, and was remanded to the Sullivan County Jail without bail pending further proceedings in connection with the case, which are scheduled for May 10.

 A criminal charge is merely an allegation that a defendant has committed a violation of the criminal law and is not evidence of guilt. All defendants are presumed innocent and entitled to a fair trial, during which it will be the State of New York’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
