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