AUBURN — A local man was charged Tuesday with manslaughter stemming from an April crash in Livermore that claimed the life of a Pennsylvania woman.

Kevin Gauthier, 30, of Auburn was indicted by an Androscoggin County grand jury on the felony charge, which is punishable by up to 30 years in prison.

The grand jury also charged him with aggravated criminal operating under the influence, a felony that carries a maximum sentence of up to 10 years in prison.

Gauthier faces two additional felony charges of reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon and driving to endanger, each punishable by up to five years in prison.

He had not been charged in connection with the crash before Tuesday.

Investigators said Gauthier was driving a 2022 Subaru that crossed the centerline on state Route 108 on April 16 and struck a 2020 Mitsubishi SUV driven by Sheila Brown, 63, of East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania.

Gauthier was transported to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston with injuries not considered life-threatening.

Sheriff’s deputies, Livermore fire and NorthStar Ambulance responded to the scene, which is also known as Canton Road, shortly after 6 a.m. that Sunday.
