TIFFIN, Ohio (AP) — A woman accused of setting a house fire that killed two deaf people in northwestern Ohio has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.
A judge ordered that 31-year-old Shey Weiker undergo an evaluation after she entered the plea Wednesday in a Seneca County court.
She's one of three people charged in the arson fire last month in Fostoria that left two people dead and one hospitalized.
Authorities say Weiker used a railroad flare to start the fire on May 26 that killed 48-year-old Danny Marker Jr. and 44-year-old Tara Vance.
A detective said abuse allegations made against Marker spurred the group to set the fire. Their attorneys have not returned calls seeking comment.
