A 95-year-old Australian woman has died a week after a police officer shot her with a stun gun in a nursing home as she moved toward him using a walker and carrying a steak knife, in a tragedy that has outraged many Australians. Clare Nowland, who had dementia, had been hospitalized since her skull was fractured when she fell on May 17 after Constable Kristian White shocked her with a stun gun. Police announced her death hours after reporting that White has been ordered to appear in court on assault and other charges. The charges are likely to be upgraded following her death.
