A grand jury has indicted two men suspected in a string of east Texas church arsons this year.
Smith County District Attorney Matt Bingham on Tuesday announced that 20-year-old Jason Robert Bourque is facing five counts of arson and three counts of attempted arson. Bingham tells the Tyler Morning-Telegraph that 22-year-old Daniel George McAllister faces two counts of arson and two counts of attempted arson.
The men were charged in one fire after their February arrests and were suspected of setting up to nine others. Nobody was injured in the blazes.
Bourque and McAllister are held on $10 million bond each and face up to life in prison if convicted.
Bingham's assistant told The Associated Press on Wednesday that she didn't have copies of the indictments returned May 13.
