Baltimore County grand jurors on Monday indicted a woman on six counts in the deaths of a 5-year-old girl and her grandmother who police said were struck by a car in Timonium last month.
The alleged driver of the car, Callie Noble Schwarzman, 22, is charged with two counts of negligent manslaughter, a felony that carries up to 10 years in prison. She is also charged with two counts of criminally negligent manslaughter, a misdemeanor that carries up to three years; driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol; and driving while impaired by a controlled dangerous substance, court records show. The indictment does not list penalties for the last two charges, but possible sentence time for those counts vary based on previous convictions.
Callie Noble Schwarzman was arrested Tuesday night on charges that she violated probation for a 2017 drunken driving offense in Carroll County. Investigators obtained a warrant for her arrest Wednesday for charges related to the deaths of 60-year-old Deborah Limmer and 5-year-old Delaney Gaddis.
The indictments move the case from district court, where charges were initially filed against Schwarzamn, to circuit court, which generally handles more serious criminal cases.
Schwarzman previously faced additional charges in the case, including two counts of homicide by motor vehicle while impaired by alcohol; homicide by motor vehicle while impaired by drugs; and homicide by motor vehicle while impaired by CDS. Those charges carry a less serious prison sentences than the negligent manslaughter charges.
The Baltimore County State’s Attorney’s Office declined to comment Tuesday. Court records show Schwarzman was being represented by the public defender’s office, which did not return a call for comment Tuesday.
