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.
