NBC NEWS – Lauren Pazienza, now 28, shoved Barbara Maier Gustern to the ground from behind in the Chelsea neighborhood on March 10, 2022, officials said at the time. Gustern, a vocal coach fondly regarded in New York’s theater community, died five days later of blunt force trauma to the head. Pazienza pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter in a plea deal and will be sentenced Sept. 29 to eight years in prison, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg said in a statement. Pazienza shouted obscenities at Gustern before she crossed the street and shoved her to the ground, the district attorney’s office said.
