It is alleged that on January 1, 2017, around 10:00 a.m., at 250 Gold Street in the city of Buffalo, the defendant fatally shot 30-year-old Shanna Mason of Sloan, NY.
Whitaker pleaded not guilty and was remanded to jail without bail. If convicted of the murder charge, she faces a maximum of 25 years to life in prison.
DA Flynn commends the investigative work of Buffalo Police Homicide Detectives Michael Mordino, Timothy Salamone and Richard Wagstaff.
As are all persons accused of a crime, the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
