North Side woman denies arson in home fire

| 02/12/2013

(CNS): A woman suffering from mental health issues has denied three charges of arson and intentionally or recklessly trying to endanger anyone’s life when she set fire to her own home in North Side. The woman has been charged with setting three fires, one of which occurred in August and another two in October, at her home and a neighbouring property. Although she admits starting the fires, the defendant denies any intention to hurt anyone. After she had been in jail on remand at Fairbanks for almost two months because of delays relating to assessments of her ability to plead and understand the charges, the woman was finally bailed by Justice Henderson on Friday into the care of her son and on the commitment that the woman would continue taking her medication.
