NEW CASTLE, Pa. —
A memorial T-shirt honoring fallen Shenango Township police officer William "Jerry" McCarthy has been designed and is now being sold.
The shirts are being made available at the Shenango Township Police Department, the township offices and online at https://local.nixle.com/alert/5002910/?sub_id=544481.
Police said 26-year-old Kylee Barletto was driving on a suspended license when she crashed into a police cruiser, killing McCarthy on May 2.
McCarthy and his partner, Officer Michael Lynch, responded while state police were chasing Barletto, who was reportedly driving erratically and was known to have a suspended license.
State police said the township officers were positioned near Cascade Street and Warren Avenue in New Castle when Barletto's car smashed into their cruiser. McCarthy died on the way to the hospital.
Barletto is charged with homicide by vehicle and manslaughter. Channel 11's Amy Marcinkiewicz reported that she is being held on $250,000 bond.
