Forsyth Man, Woman Charged in House Fire
Two Forsyth residents face charges that they tried to kill five people by setting a house on fire.
Amber Neil Hart made an initial appearance in Justice Court in Rosebud County on Thursday on five counts of accountability to deliberate homicide, accountability to arson, criminal endangerment and tampering with evidence.
The Billings Gazette reports Hart was being held in Yellowstone County while co-defendant 21-year-old Scott Thomas Granger is jailed in Rosebud County. Bail was set at $250,000 each, and both have public defenders.
Granger was arrested shortly after the Nov. 3 fire, which prosecutors say was set after Granger reportedly became angry over a photo taken at a house party. Five people escaped out a window. Granger faces trial Sept. 2 on five counts of attempted deliberate homicide, arson, assault with a weapon and criminal endangerment.
