Man Charged in Connection with Gates Overdose Death; Indicted

The man charged in connection with an overdose death earlier this year at a motel in Gates, is being indicted by a Monroe County Grand Jury.

Scott Pernesky was indicted yesterday on a charge of tampering with physical evidence. 

Police say Pernesky was with his girlfriend, Jennifer Baker, at a motel on Buell Road when she died of a heroin overdose back in Feburary. Instead of calling 911, investigators say Pernesky hid the drugs that were still in the room and wrapped Baker's body in sheets before fleeing from the room.

Police later captured Pernesky in Chemung County.
