Bond Set For 3 Arrested In Fatal Ohio House Fire

FOSTORIA, Ohio (AP) — Three people charged in a northwestern Ohio house fire that killed two have made their initial court appearances.

Two of the suspects are each being held on a $2 million bond. Bond for the third suspect was set at $1.5 million Tuesday.

Police in Fostoria haven’t released a motive or the names of the victims in the fire, which was ruled arson.

Officials say the fire started at the front of the house Monday, but they haven’t said how it started.

Police say 31-year-old Shey Weiker is facing multiple charges, including aggravated murder and aggravated arson. Charges against 44-year-old Charles Schaeffer and 20-year-old Timothy Hall include complicity to commit aggravated murder and complicity to commit arson.

The suspects are from Fostoria. Their attorneys didn’t immediately respond to messages Tuesday.
