Limestone Woman Appears in Court 

(AP) – 23-year-old Heather Fortin appeared via video from jail during the hearing in a Presque Isle courtroom. She’s being held with bail set at $50,000 cash or $200,000 in property.

Fortin was arrested Wednesday after the state medical examiner ruled that the death of a 20-month-old Teairra Leathers was a homicide.

Fortin was baby-sitting Teairra and an older sister when Fortin called for an ambulance on June 18th and reported that the baby was unresponsive. She died the following day.
