FOSTORIA HOUSE FIRE
Ohio woman charged in fire that killed 2 deaf people pleads not guilty by reason of insanity

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, June 18, 2014 6:11 PM EDT
TIFFIN, Ohio


A woman accused of setting a house fire that killed two deaf people in northwestern Ohio has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.

A judge ordered that 31-year-old Shey Weiker undergo an evaluation after she entered the plea Wednesday in a Seneca County court.

She's one of three people charged in the arson fire last month in Fostoria that left two people dead and one hospitalized.

Authorities say Weiker used a railroad flare to start the fire on May 26 that killed 48-year-old Danny Marker Jr. and 44-year-old Tara Vance.

A detective said abuse allegations made against Marker spurred the group to set the fire. Their attorneys have not returned calls seeking comment.
