BILOXI, Miss. (AP) - A bond reduction hearing for a woman accused of setting a D'Iberville apartment building on fire resumes Thursday in Harrison County Circuit Court.
The Sun Herald reports (http://bit.ly/QZZYIs ) 26-year-old Krystal Gonzalez on Monday testified she would make all court appearances if a judge lowers her bond pending resolution of a first-degree arson charge.
Gonzalez is accused of starting a fire on Mardi Gras night that destroyed a 20-unit building at Arbor View apartments and displayed 40 residents.
Gonzalez is held at the Harrison County jail on a $2 million bond pending a grand jury review.
Before Monday's hearing, attorney Michael Crosby said he believes evidence will show Gonzalez did not set the fire intentionally.
