Episcopal Bishop Heather Cook entered a not-guilty plea to the charges she faces in the death of cyclist Tom Palermo, the AP’s Juliet Linderman reports.
The plea sets up a June 4 trial for Cook, who faces charges of vehicular manslaughter, leaving the scene of an accident, drunk driving and texting while driving in connection with the Dec. 27 crash.
Cook allegedly hit Palermo while he was riding in the bike lane on Roland Ave., and left the scene. She later returned, and blew a .22, which is nearly three times the legal limit.
A plea agreement could still be reached to avoid trial.
Cook has been undergoing treatment at a facility in Havre de Grace.
