  • A Penfield man, charged with manslaughter in connection with the death of a Fairport High School teacher, pled not guilty in Monroe County Court Monday morning.
    Mark Scerbo II is charged with violating his conditional release from prison on two previous DWI charges. Prosecutors say as part of his release from prison on July 5. Scerbo could not violate the law and was also mandated to have an interlock device on any vehicles he operated.
    Assistant District Attorney Karin Intermill says Scerbo was operating a motorcycle without the interlock device and also violated the law due to the manslaughter charge. Scerbo also didn't have a license.
    Judge Doug Randall entered a plea of not guilty for Scerbo on the violations. Scerbo had just been released from prison three weeks before the crash that killed 40-year-old Heather Boyum. She was riding her bike when police say she was hit and killed by a motorcycle Scerbo was driving and the run over by a car.
    Investigators say Megan Merkel of Ontario was driving that car drunk. She is charged with vehicular manslaughter.
    Scerbo is being held without bail. He is due back in court on Aug. 28.
