SKOWHEGAN, Maine — A 42-year-old man who allegedly threatened to kill staff at the Cornville Charter School in September was one of 14 people indicted by a Somerset County grand jury on Thursday.

James L. Mayo II of Skowhegan was indicted on two charges of terrorizing, two counts of refusing to submit to arrest, criminal mischief and violating conditions of release.

On Sept. 2, Mayo allegedly banged on windows and threatened to kill staff at the school, according to Chief Deputy Dale Lancaster of the Somerset County Sheriff’s Department. Mayo did not have any weapons, and students were not in the building because of the Labor Day holiday.
