Charges have been dropped against three people accused of burning a Jackson County couple's home while they were in jail.
The fire destroyed the home of Peter and Stephanie Lizon in May.
Peter Lizon was arrested in July 2012 in a malicious wounding case involving his wife. Those charges were dropped in August, in part because the woman denied the allegations and refused to cooperate with prosecutors.
Peter Lizon still faces a misdemeanor charge for allegedly violating conditions of his bail by being in contact with his wife.
