Lower bail denied for man accused of biting ear


A Carroll judge refused Monday to lower the $10,000 bail set for a Westminster man accused of trying to bite off a woman's ear last week.

Everett Lewis Neff, 29, of the first block of Washington Road was arrested Friday and charged with battery and causing a malicious injury with the intent to maim. He was placed in the Carroll County Detention Center later that afternoon in lieu of $10,000 bail.

According to charging documents, Cheryl Ann Riegel claimed someone kicked her in the face and tried to bite her ear off Thursday night while she was at a friend's house in Westminster.

An arrest warrant was issued for Mr. Neff before noon Friday, and Westminster Officer Howard Friedman served it less than four hours later. If convicted, Mr. Neff could be sentenced to more than 15 years in prison.
