Woman Dies After Being Tasered By Police

Gino Geruntino, WIBX

Munnsville, NY (WIBX) – A Munnsville woman is dead after being tasered by State Police.

Police were called to an apartment on North Main Street in Munnsville for a report of a woman assaulting her 3-year old child.

When they arrived, they tried to take 35-year old Pamela McCarthy into custody, but she physically resisted being handcuffed.

Troopers had to use pepper spray and a taser to subdue her.

McCarthy then went into cardiac arrest and was taken to Oneida Healthcare, where she died.

An autopsy is scheduled for today.

Police believe McCarthy was under the influence of “bath salts.”

The child was treated for minor injuries and released to family members.

The Madison County District Attorney’s Office plans to present the case to a grand jury when the investigation is completed.
