Mother of Manhattanville Student Attempts Suicide
The woman charged with strangling her daughter at Manhattanville College on Monday has apparently tried to take her own life while in jail.
Westchester County Spokeswoman Donna Greene confirms that 37 year old Stacey Pagli wrapped socks around her neck in her cell at the Westchester County jail, but was uninjured after she was interrupted by jail officials. Pagli had been on suicide watch at the time. Pagli was charged yesterday with second degree murder in the death of her daughter, 18 year old Marissa Pagli, who was found strangled in campus housing she shared with her mother and father who is a maintenance worker at the College.
Officials say it's the second time Stacey Pagli tried to take her life. She attempted to hang herself Monday after the killing.
A wake for Marissa Pagli is planned tonight in Port Chester. Funeral services are slated tomorrow at 11 a.m. at St. Antony of Padua Church in Harrison.
