BANGOR, Maine — A Greenbush man accused of causing his brother’s death while driving drunk earlier this year was indicted Wednesday on one count each of manslaughter and aggravated operating under the influence of intoxicants by the Penobscot County grand jury.
Nicholas Spencer, 22, was arrested June 14 after he turned himself in when he learned a warrant had been issued for his arrest.
Spencer was released from the Penobscot County Jail two days later on $10,000 cash bail, jail personnel said Wednesday.
He is expected to be arraigned at the Penobscot Judicial Center on Aug. 2.
Spencer was driving on County Road in Milford at a high rate of speed on Feb. 24 when he lost control of his vehicle and struck a telephone pole and a large rock, Chief Deputy William Sheehan of the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement released at the time.
Spencer’s brother Matthew Spencer, 28, also of Greenbush, was pronounced dead at the scene. Nicholas Spencer suffered life-threatening injuries, and a second passenger, Samuel Ketch, then 29, of Milford, suffered minor injuries.
If convicted, Spencer faces up to 30 years in prison and a fine of up to $50,000 on the manslaughter charge.
In an unrelated case, Kailie A. Brackett, 32, of Calais was indicted Wednesday on two counts of robbery and one count each of eluding an officer, trafficking in prison contraband, endangering the welfare of a child, unlawful possession of scheduled drugs, driving to endanger and theft by unauthorized taking.
Brackett remained Wednesday at the Penobscot County Jail unable to post $50,000 cash bail, according to jail personnel.
She is accused of robbing the Circle K on Route 1A in Holden on April 1, according to a previously published report. Brackett allegedly tried to elude a police officer who attempted to pull her over for motor vehicle violations after she robbed the store.
Brackett reportedly had her 2-year-old son in the car with her.
If convicted on the most serious charge of Class A robbery, which includes the use of a weapon, Brackett faces up to 30 years in prison and a fine of up to $50,000.
