Woman Accused in House Fire Charged with Attempted Murder
MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) — A woman accused of torching her Mitchell home is now also accused of trying to kill her husband.
Thirty-eight-year-old Dawn Long was charged late last year with setting fire to the house. The Daily Republic newspaper reports that she was recently indicted on an attempted murder charge, for allegedly trying to kill her husband, Todd Long.
It isn't clear if she has an attorney, and a home telephone listing for her couldn't be found.
Authorities say the fire damaged Long's home on Oct. 8, 2015. She allegedly led law officers on a chase that day that ended when she crashed her vehicle and was hospitalized with serious injuries. She was charged two months later with reckless burning, reckless driving and eluding.
