November 26, 2018

A woman has been accused of setting two fires in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Linn County court records say 48-year-old Carolyn Mittman is charged with two counts of arson.

Her attorney didn’t immediately return a call from The Associated Press. Mittman’s next court hearing is scheduled for Nov. 28.

Court documents say Mittman told investigators that she’d set a fire Oct. 22 at an apartment and set one on Oct. 13, 2017, at her former home to collect insurance money.
