Two men accused of auto manslaughter in the death of a Westminster woman last week were released yesterday from the Carroll County Detention Center after posting $25,000 bail, court records show.

Frederick H. Hensen Jr., 21, of Westminster was arrested Friday. Scott D. Broadfoot Sr., 25, of Parkville was arrested Monday. Both men were charged with negligent auto manslaughter, reckless and negligent driving, participating in a speed contest and related charges.

Broadfoot also was charged with failing to remain at the accident scene. State police said they will serve an arrest warrant on a third suspect, Mark E. Eppig, 22, when his medical condition improves.

Eppig suffered injuries in the fatal collision June 1, when the 1991 Nissan he was driving went out of control on Route 140 near Finksburg, crossed the grass median and struck a 1997 Mitsubishi driven by Geraldine Lane "Geri" Wu, 42.

Wu, a Mount Airy Middle School teacher, was killed instantly, and her 14-year-old daughter, Min-li, a passenger, was taken by MedEvac helicopter to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where she was treated and released the next day.
