Carter trial to begin Dec. 10

Suspect charged in 2012 beating, robbery of Fulton woman

The jury trial for a Fulton woman arrested for the random beating and robbery of a shopper leaving Walmart will begin a week from today.

Pamela Carter, 58, will begin her trial 9 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 10, in the Callaway County Courthouse on two counts of first degree assault with serious physical injury, first degree robbery and misdemeanor unlawful use of drug paraphernalia stemming from an October 2012 incident in which Sara L. Spencer, 53, of Fulton, was left in serious condition at a Columbia hospital.

Callaway County Prosecuting Attorney Chris Wilson said that Carter faces 10-30 years in prison for each count of assault and robbery which are Class A felonies. Carter’s jury was selected out of St. Charles County.

Spencer was found around 10:30 a.m. Oct. 6, 2012 by Fulton Police and Callaway County Sheriff’s officers face down in a ditch along County Road 210 with “serious injuries indicating she was assaulted.”
