NASHVILLE, Tennessee. – A woman charged with the death of a Tennessee police officer who tried to help her has taken a plea deal.
News outlets report 42-year-old Judi Glisson on Tuesday pleaded guilty to vehicle homicide by poisoning in 2017, the death of Metro Nashville police officer Eric Mumaw. Under her plea deal, she must serve at least 30 percent of its 12-year sentence and will be excluded from the driving license for 10 years.
Mumaw and other officers were called in to assist a reportedly suicidal Glisson in her car at a boat ramp. The police said Mumaw was pulled into the cold water with Glisson vehicle when they moved from the park. His body was found hours later.
Prosecutor Kyle Anderson said Glisson was not going to hurt anyone, which is factored into the plea deal.
