According to court records, the case against 68-year-old Kathryn Friday was dismissed “due to defendant is deceased.”

Friday was charged with two counts of perjury before the court and one count of resisting or obstructing an officer.

Friday was arrested in May of 2019 along with her boyfriend, 75-year-old James Prokopovitz, in the case.

In April 2013, James’ wife, Victoria, was last seen at her home on Kunish Road in Pittsfield. She was reported missing the next day. Victoria, who was 60-years-old at the time of her disappearance, left behind her purse, ID, money, and cell phone.

He told police that he noticed she was gone when he woke up to go to work in the morning. When he got home that afternoon, he called police.

A cause of death for Friday has not been given.

James is scheduled to appear in court again in January.
