Court dates set for Greensburg mother in 1996 arson case

Kristine Bunch

Court dates were set Thursday for an Indiana mother released from prison after serving 16 years for the death of her son.

Kristine Bunch, 38, was convicted of setting a fire in 1996 that killed her three-year-old son. That conviction was overturned a few weeks ago.

The state court of appeals ordered a new trial for Bunch after new evidence suggested the fire was not deliberately set.

A final pre-trial conference will be held on February 18, 2013, and the jury trial is scheduled for March 18, 2013.
