A 51-year-old woman police have charged with driving onto a baseball field and striking and killing a man is being held on $500,000 bail.
Carol Sharrow of Sanford, Maine, made her first court appearance in the manslaughter case on Monday. She's charged with killing 68-year-old Douglas Parkhurst and faces up to 30 years in jail.
Sharrow did not speak during the brief court appearance in Alfred. The court also ordered a mental health evaluation. Sharrow will be eligible for the bail only if she gets a contract with Maine Pretrial Services, an organization that helps supervises individuals who are out on bail.
Sharrow's attorney declined to comment on a possible motive or whether Sharrow knew anyone at the field.
