Cops: Eastchester woman threatened to kill schools chief

Posted: Updated:

EASTCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - Police in suburban New York say a 37-year-old woman threatened to kill the superintendent of schools during a meeting with the superintendent and her daughter's elementary school principal.

The Journal News reports that Rita Oteri of Eastchester was charged with third-degree menacing, a misdemeanor.

Police said Oteri lunged at Superintendent Marilyn Terranova during the meeting Monday and screamed, "I'll kill you! I'll kill you."

Oteri was arraigned in Town Court and released without bail.

The judge asked her if she owned a gun, and she said, "I have a tattoo of a gun." She said she did not own an actual gun.

Eastchester Detective Sgt. Matthew Kiernan said last week's school shooting in Newtown, Conn. did not factor in the charge.

He called Oteri's behavior "totally inappropriate."

    Roadkill is part of the menu when it's feeding time at a zoo in western New York. The Seneca Park Zoo has been feeding deer carcasses to its carnivores for years. The practice began after a zoo employee hit a deer on the way to work. The zoo gets the deer after they've been hit by vehicles on Rochester-area roadways. But it won't accept deer that have been dead for more than 10 hours. The zoo also accepts deer killed by bow hunters.
