A suspect has been arrested in the hit-and-run death of Jordyn Bakley, a Camden woman who was attending the University of Maine at Orono.

Penobscot County District Attorney Chris Almy said April 16 that Garrett Cheney, 22, of South Berwick was arrested at 6 a.m. and charged with manslaughter, aggravated operating under the influence and leaving the scene of an accident. Cheney was also charged with an additional count of OUI, Almy said.

Bakley’s body was discovered on an Orono street on the morning of Jan. 30. A representative of the Maine Medical Examiner’s Office said Feb. 1 that the cause of death was multiple blunt force trauma.

“The incident happened on Middle Street,” Almy said. “The evidence that we have indicates that [the suspect] had left a residence on Middle Street, drove his Chevrolet Silverado on Middle Street, crashed into Jordyn Bakley and a snowbank, and then left the scene. He headed south from Orono onto I-95 and at about 3:30 a.m. crashed his vehicle again in Etna.” Almy said Maine State Police arrested Cheney for the second crash later that day at an Irving station in Newport.

Cheney’s vehicle was impounded and it was sometime later that police connected that vehicle with the crash on Middle Street in Orono, Almy said. He said the Orono Police Department and the state police put a lot of time into talking with witnesses and collecting physical evidence.

“Fortunately the Maine State Crime Lab and Medical Examiner’s Office put equal effort into resolving the matter,” Almy said. He said law enforcement personnel realized how important it was to resolve the matter for Bakley, her family, and the communities in Orono and the Camden area.

Cheney is scheduled to appear in court at the Penobscot County Judicial Center on May 20, Almy said.
