Spotswood Woman Charged With Setting Home, Cars On Fire
A woman who allegedly set fire to her central New Jersey home and two of her neighbors' cars last month is now facing numerous charges.
Middlesex County Prosecutor Bruce Kaplan announced Monday that 40-year-old Roccal Gilmore of Spotswood faces three counts of aggravated arson and one count of child endangerment. The latter charge was filed because two children, ages 3 and 8, were in the home when the fire was set.
No one was injured in the fires, which occurred on Jan. 18. But authorities have not said why the fires were set.
Gilmore was arrested at her home Friday and remained jailed Monday on $250,000 bail. It's not clear if she has retained a lawyer.
