AUGUSTA, Maine — A 35-year-old central Maine man faces manslaughter and other charges for allegedly being drunk when he struck and killed a camp counselor as she walked along a country road in July.

Joseph Rouleau of Fayette was indicted Friday in the death of 21-year-old Corrie Lazar. Lazar, of Seattle, was a college senior and working as a counselor at Camp Laurel in Fayette.

Police said Rouleau’s blood alcohol content was 0.23 percent, nearly three times the legal limit, when his vehicle went off the road and struck Lazar and another counselor on Route 41 in Mount Vernon.

The Kennebec Journal says Rouleau turned himself in at the Kennebec County jail Friday and was released after posting bail of $60,000 worth of real estate.
