Bail reduced on charges of child abuse


A Taneytown woman accused of leaving her 18-month-old daughter alone at home Tuesday night while she went to get beer had her bond reduced from $25,000 to $2,500 during a bail review hearing before District Judge Donald M. Smith yesterday.

Terri Lynn Manolovich, 34, of the 100 block of E. Baltimore St. was charged with child abuse, reckless endangerment of a child, confining an unattended child, disorderly conduct and failure to obey the lawful order of a police officer.

Officer Edward Engel of the Taneytown police force said the woman was a passenger in an automobile he stopped for a traffic violation at 11:50 p.m. Tuesday. He said the passenger got out of the car and began shouting obscenities at him.

Officer Engel said he knew the woman and asked her who was watching her small daughter. The woman replied that someone was at the house, but police said a check at the house determined the child was alone in a crib in the second-floor bedroom.
