Maine woman gets more time to prep for manslaughter case

The Associated Press

ELLSWORTH — A lawyer for a Deer Isle woman facing a manslaughter charge for allegedly running over her boyfriend has requested more time to prepare for the case.

An attorney for 30-year-old Kimberly Phelan was granted his request by a judge Thursday in Hancock County court.

Authorities say Phelan and 31-year-old Andrew Ray were driving home in the early morning hours last Sept. 15 after a night of drinking when they stopped in Blue Hill to smoke marijuana.

Police say they had an argument and when Phelan put the vehicle in reverse she ran over Ray. He later died at a hospital.

WABI-TV reports court documents show her blood alcohol level was more twice the legal limit.

Phelan, who is free on bail, is scheduled back in Court April 18.
