Charge: ND parent threatened children with Taser, shot them in feet with BB gun

Casey Jerome Lunski

LARIMORE, N.D. - Two Larimore residents face child neglect charges after one allegedly used a Taser to scare his children and shot at them with a BB gun.

Casey Jerome Lunski, 34, and Angela Kay Lunski, 45, had initial appearances Thursday in Grand Forks District Court, where they have been charged with child neglect-parental care, a Class C felony. Casey Lunski also was charged with a Class C felony charge of child abuse.

Court documents filed Feb. 13 detail the alleged abuse by Casey Lunski against two children. The Grand Forks Sheriff’s Office began to investigate the alleged acts in November after receiving calls from a family member and Larimore school officials.

One child said Casey Lunski would scare the children by getting close to them and turning on a Taser stun gun, according to court documents. Casey Lunski also allegedly would shoot a BB gun at the children, and one of them had a mark on her foot from the gun, court documents said.

Other instances included hitting a child’s head and back against a wall, twisting arms to cause pain, pulling hair and striking the head of a child, according to court documents. The children said the alleged abuse resulted in bruising.
