A 52-year-old Severn woman was killed Wednesday evening when a man backed his car into her as she walked up her driveway, Anne Arundel County police said yesterday.

Rosemary Rice Walker of the 1200 block of Sleepy Hollow Road was pronounced dead at the scene.

The incident began around 6 p.m. Wednesday when someone && broke into a barn on Ms. Walker's land and tried to take some items, police said.

At 6:13 p.m., Ms. Walker called the police, then went outside, said Officer Randy Bell, a police spokesman. As she walked up the driveway leading to her barn, a man tried to back his car out the driveway and hit her.

Moments later, officers responding to Ms. Walker's call saw a man trying to back out the front driveway, police said. Witnesses told officers what had happened, and the man was detained.

Richard Neil Hubbard, 38, of the 7700 block of Telegraph Road, has been charged with trespassing and with breaking and entering.

A neighbor who spoke on condition on anonymity said Mr. Hubbard had rented the barn and was evicted last week. The neighbor said Mr. Hubbard had returned to pick up personal items.

He was released on his own recognizance yesterday.

The county state's attorney's office will decide if charges will be filed in connection with Ms. Walker's death, police said.
