ROCHESTER, N.Y. — A judge has ruled that a woman, her boyfriend and her two sons will be tried together in one trial for killing the woman’s estranged husband last year.

The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reports (http://on.rocne.ws/2sBTu8V ) that State Supreme Court Justice Thomas Moran ruled Wednesday that the four defendants charged with killing Craig Rideout will stand trial starting Tuesday.

Authorities say Rideout’s body was found wrapped in a tarp and dumped in a wooded area in the Finger Lakes region last summer. His face had been disfigured by a corrosive liquid.

Charged with murder are Laura Rideout, Paul Tucci and Colin and Alexander Rideout. Moran said their trial is expected to last six weeks.

Rideout disappeared from his home in the Rochester suburb of Penfield last July.
