Prosecutors File More Charges

The woman accused of kidnapping and beating a Fulton woman, then leaving her for dead, is now facing even more charges.Callaway County prosecutors filed first degree robbery charges against Pamela Carter Friday morning. This would be the second case Carter is connected to from October.Police say besides the assault and robbery charges, Carter is also behind bars for an armed robbery at the Holiday Inn Express in Fulton. “It started with a call from Holiday Inn Express,” Callaway County Prosecutor Chris Wilson said. “The clerk at the Holiday Inn reported she’d been robbed at knife point.”That robbery was early in the morning on Friday, October 5. A masked robber got away with cash, but at that point police had no leads.Wilson said, “That investigation had started before the crime had even occurred with respect to the victim at Walmart.”Fast forward 24 hours, Sara Spencer is found blood and beaten in a ditch. Hour later police find her car at the local Walmart.”So there were two investigations going at the same time. And at that time, although there were some similarities, there was no indication that they were related to one another,” Wilson told ABC 17 News.By Sunday afternoon, two days after the Holiday Inn robbery, Pamela Carter was arrested for Spencer’s assault. That’s when Wilson says pieces started to come together.He said, “Facts about one related to facts about the other.”Court documents show during a search of Carter’s home, police found this blue and white van linking her to Spencer’s assault, but they also found other evidence tied to the armed robbery including the clothing she wore at the time of the robbery, and the mask. Law enforcement used those items to tie Carter to both crimes, and to file additional charges. She remains in the Callaway County jail with a preliminary hearing scheduled for December.
