The Latest on a court case in which a woman is accused of driving onto a Maine baseball field during a game and striking and killing a man (all times local):

2:40 p.m.

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.

Parkhurst had confessed five years ago to a 1968 hit-and-run death in New York.
