All suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
Lance R. Christman, 45, who resided at 75 S. Tulpehocken St., Apt. 2, the building in which the blaze began, and Amber M. Marek-Jolley, 21, whose last address was listed as 115 W. Nickel Ave., Independence, Mo., were taken into custody without incident by Pine Grove police.
Both were arraigned on seven counts each of causing or risking a catastrophe and criminal mischief, felony offenses; seven counts of failure to control or a report a dangerous fire and recklessly endangering another person, both misdemeanor offenses; along with one felony count of conspiracy, a misdemeanor charge of conspiracy and felony charge of unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine.
