Carol Sharrow

ALFRED — The Sanford woman facing manslaughter and 14 other charges in connection with a hit-and-run death after her car careened around a ball field during a June Babe Ruth baseball game in Sanford will be arraigned Nov. 9.

Carol Sharrow is charged with killing Douglas Parkhurst of West Newfield.

Shad been scheduled for a court hearing on Wednesday, but that was postponed, said her attorney Robert Ruffner. Instead, Ruffner, the prosecutor and a York County Superior Court justice met in the judge’s chambers to discuss the case.

A York County grand jury handed up a 15-count indictment against Sharrow, 51, of Sanford, on Oct. 3.

As well as manslaughter, the indictment charges elevated aggravated assault, driving to endanger, leaving the scene of an accident and 11 counts of reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon.

An indictment is a finding that enough evidence exists to move forward with prosecution.

Police said Sharrow was driving her maroon Honda on Roberts Street on June 1, entered Goodall Park through the main gate and drove onto the field, where a game was being played.

A video posted on Facebook that night  by a witness shows players scattering as the vehicle careened around the field. Police said Sharrow hit Parkhurst as she exited the ballpark, and kept driving. Parkhurst, 68, died on the way to the hospital.

Sharrow last appeared in court on June 4. She was ordered by York County Superior Court Justice Wayne Douglas to undergo a mental health exam and was ordered held in lieu of $500,000 cash bail.
