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.
