The caller reported finding Doris deceased inside her home on Church Street in North Adams. State Police assigned to the Berkshire District Attorney's Office along with the North Adams Police Department established probable cause that Kelsie murdered her grandmother on Halloween night.

Law enforcement officials also established probable cause that Kelsie attempted to destroy evidence of the crime. Obviously, all defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

Berkshire District Attorney Andrea Harrington had this to say on the matter:

I send my heartfelt condolences to Doris Cote’s family and friends for their tragic loss, and I thank the North Adams Police and the Massachusetts State Police for their work on this investigation.

Kelsie Cote is being charged with murder, assault with intent to murder, and destruction of evidence. She is expected to be arraigned sometime today in Northern Berkshire District Court.
