A police officer who allegedly recklessly tasered 95-year-old Clare Nowland in her aged care home has had his charge upgraded to manslaughter. Clare Nowland, 95, was suffering a dementia episode when she was allegedly tasered in a Cooma nursing home by Senior Constable Kristian White. She died in hospital about a week later. Earlier this year, the 33-year-old police officer was charged with recklessly causing grievous bodily harm, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and common assault over the incident. On Wednesday, police charged Mr White with manslaughter after receiving advice from the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions and State Crime Command’s Homicide Squad. Mr White remains suspended from duty with pay and will next appear at Cooma Local Court on December 6. More to come.
