INDIANAPOLIS -

An attorney for an Indiana mother convicted of setting a 1996 fire that killed her 3-year-old son expects her to be released on bond this week as she awaits a new trial on charges of murder and arson.

Kristine Bunch's lawyer said Monday that the Greensburg woman can't wait to breathe free air after 16 years in prison.

The state appeals court on Friday ordered a Decatur County court to either reinstate Bunch's original $5,000 bond or hold a new bond hearing by Wednesday afternoon.

The appeals court overturned the 38-year-old woman's conviction in March after her lawyers argued new science shows there was no evidence of arson in the mobile home fire.

The county prosecutor and state attorney general's office didn't immediately return calls seeking comment.
