WATERTOWN, WI (WTAQ) - A 28-year-old woman faces 10 criminal charges, after she allegedly started a fire in a Watertown apartment following an argument with her ex-boyfriend.
Three people were hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries. Two jumped from the second floor and the third was rescued.
According to Jefferson County prosecutors, Trisha Krueger and Jacob Verriden got into an intense argument early Sunday that included threatening text messages and yelling -- and she started the apartment on fire to, "just hurt Verriden back."
The apartments were located above a tavern. Officials said the business and much of the apartments had extensive damage.
In court Monday, a $20,000 cash bond was ordered for Krueger on a charge of arson and six felony counts of reckless endangerment. A preliminary hearing was set for next Monday.
Krueger also pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor count of battery and two charges of disorderly conduct. A signature bond was granted in that case.
