The Star-Ledger reports Edison police officer Michael Dotro didn’t speak during the brief hearing Monday. His lawyer entered not guilty pleas to charges that include aggravated arson and five counts of attempted murder.

Dotro is accused of setting fire to police captain Mark Anderko’s home in Monroe Township in May 2013. Anderko’s wife, two children and mother were in the house at the time but weren’t injured.

Dotro’s wife, Alycia, is also charged in the case. She pleaded not guilty on Monday to a charge of hindering the investigation.

Authorities have said Dotro was angry about a recent transfer and a forced psychological evaluation.
