Woman Held in Beatle's Break-In
Jan. 01, 2000
WAILUKU, Hawaii (AP) _ A woman arrested inside George Harrison's Maui estate a week before the former Beatle was stabbed in London was being held on $5,000 bail.
Cristin Keleher is scheduled to be arraigned on Jan. 11 on charges of first-degree burglary and fourth-degree theft.
Prosecutors said Ms. Keleher had been stalking Harrison. Don Carroll, who manages the estate, said she had approached him in October and said she wanted to meet Harrison.
After she was arrested Dec. 23, Ms Keleher told police she had walked into the home through an open sliding glass door.
``She said she had cooked a frozen pizza, drank a root beer soda, she was doing her laundry and she had made a long-distance call to her mother in New Jersey,'' officer Jeffrey Hunt said.
Harrison was stabbed in the chest by an intruder in his mansion near London early Thursday. He was treated for a collapsed right lung.
The mother of the man accused in the stabbing was quoted in the Liverpool Echo newspaper as saying her son had a history of mental problems and ``had recently become obsessed'' with The Beatles. Michael Abram, 33, was charged with attempted murder.
