Bad Starter???????

My Fiancee has a 1992 Mercury Sable w/ 3.8 liter, automatic,air, 4 door sedan. The problem is the car won't start. The day it died we had trouble starting it in the morning and saw sparks coming out from the passenger side front tire well. I replaced the Solinoid and it still won't start. Two days later we heard the starter spinning but the key was out of the ignition and turned off. I thought it might be the starter relay but that did no good.
At this point I do not know what to try or where to go....
When you turn the ignition switch on, the radio comes on and other electrical works so I ruled out the ignition switch.....HELP!!!!!

Can anyone give me some advice or point me in a diferent direction. Thanks

Take the starter to any parts store and have them bench test it for you.
