Carol Graves, who was then 36, pleaded guilty to manslaughter.

Graves told police she shot her 71-year-old father, Douglas Graves, on May 14, 1996, after he brandished a hunting knife in his mobile home on Route 1 in Ellsworth.

Baldacci’s office said Graves had been severely physically, emotionally and sexually abused by her father from the age of 5 and at the time of the killing was suicidal.
