Former resident faces arson charge

July 19, 2001

Jill S. Lavin, a former Eudora resident charged with arson last month, will appear in court at 2 p.m. Thursday, July 19 in Lawrence. Douglas County District Attorney Christine Kenney said the purpose of the appearance was to set a preliminary hearing.

"The court doesn't want us to show up with witnesses," Kenney said.

Lavin's first appearance was July 11.

Douglas County Sheriff's officers arrested her last month on charges of arson and making a false writing.

Three fires occurred at her home, 1533 Sycamore, in February and March of 2000.
