Massena woman charged with criminal trespass


CRIMINAL TRESPASS - MASSENA - Massena-based state police charged Marsha J. Garrow, 27, of 8 Victory Road, Massena, with second-degree criminal trespass following an incident that reportedly took place at 11:25 a.m. Sunday at 813 County Route 39, Louisville. She allegedly entered the resident of her ex-boyfriend, Shawn J. Biter, as he was attempting to keep her out of his residence and had told her she was not welcome in his home.

Mr. Biter, in a statement he provided to troopers, said Garrow had started calling him at 2 a.m. “She was made at me about something a girl said at that bar,” he noted.

He said she later sent him a text message saying she was going to pick up their three-year-old son. “I told her no, that she could come get him tomorrow because that was our agreement,” Mr. Biter told police.

He said he and Garrow have joint custody of their son with physical placement with the child’s mother. But he said Garrow works weekends so the child spends most weekends with him.

Mr. Biter said Garrow managed to get inside his residence as he tried to shut the door before she could enter his home. “I shoved Marsha out the door and slammed the main door shut. I locked the door and deadbolted it shut and had my other child lock the side door,” he noted in his statement.

Garrow was arraigned by Massena Town Justice Gerald P. Sharlow and released on her own recognizance to appear Dec. 7 in Louisville Town Court. The court signed a temporary order of protection directing Garrow not to harass, annoy or alarm Mr. Biter.
