Dillsburg man charged in fatal boating accident at Raystown Lake

A York County man has been charged in a July 4 boating accident that killed a Carlisle woman at Raystown Lake.

The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission has filed death by watercraft charges against 57-year-old Timothy Stefanon of Dillsburg.

Officials said Stefanon wasn’t paying attention when he crashed his boat into the shoreline.

One of his passengers, Francesca Harris, drowned while she was trapped in the boat’s cabin as it rapidly sank.

If convicted, Stefanon faces up to five years in prison.
