Retired NYPD officer Mauri Belarmino allegedly strangled elderly mother


Authorities and police sources say a retired NYPD police officer strangled her elderly mother at their Staten Island home over the weekend.

Mauri Belarmino, 40 — who, according to sources, retired from the NYPD in 2016 — was at the house on Ramapo Avenue in Rossville around noon on Saturday when she got into a heated fight with her 74-year-old mother, Sherylyn Bailey, police said.

During the fight, Belarmino strangled her mother, authorities said.

Belarmino, who has a history of domestic conflict with her mother, retired from the NYPD in 2016.

Responding officers found Bailey unconscious in the house and she was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.

Her death was assessed as a manslaughter by strangulation on Tuesday, police said.

Belarmino was arrested on Wednesday and charged with murder and strangulation, authorities said.

During her 8-year tenure with the NYPD, Belarmino worked on the Staten Island ferry detail, police sources said.

The mother and daughter have a history of domestic conflict, according to police.

The NYPD last responded to a domestic incident involving the couple in 2018, police said.

Police responded to an “emotionally disturbed person” incident involving Belarmino on July 30 this year, police said.

However, she has no previous arrests, authorities said.
