Sally Ann Earl Costello
Kennebec County Jail

Police have released the identities of a Readfield couple that were involved in a shooting on Wednesday.

The Kennebec County Sheriff’s Department identified the suspect who was arrested as 61-year-old Sally Ann Earl-Costello. She’s accused of shooting her husband, 81-year-old Hugh Costello, outside their home, seriously injuring him. There’s no word today on his condition. A search of the home turned up a firearm that’s believed to have been used in the incident. Earl-Costello is a licensed veterinarian who had previously worked at Annabessacook Veterinary Clinic in Monmouth.

WABI-TV reports police are familiar with the couple, having been called to the Sturtevant Hill Road home many times for domestic disturbances. Earl-Costello is charged with Elevated Aggravated Assault.
