Mark Schobel, of Anson, was arrested Thursday night after being indicted by a Somerset County grand jury in the deaths of Ruth Souweine, 67, of Bangor and Jennifer Nile, 22, a passenger in Schobel’s car, according to court documents. He is charged with two counts of class A manslaughter.

On Feb.27, Schobel was driving east on Route 16 in Embden at around 4:30 p.m. and had just passed another vehicle not involved in the crash when he hit a Subaru Outback driven by Souweine’s husband, Leon Souweine, according to an affidavit filed by Lt. Carl Gottardi of the Somerset County Sheriff’s Department.

Nile was pronounced dead at the scene. The other three people were taken to Redington-Fairview General Hospital in Skowhegan and later transferred by LifeFlight helicopter to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, where Ruth Souweine died of her injuries three days later. Schobel was described in the affidavit as badly injured.
