Couple indicted in connection to wildfires
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - A couple has been indicted on two counts related to wildfires.
According to the West Virginia Division of Forestry, Katie Jean Holstine and Lovell Ruben Holstine, both from Emmons, were indicted on one count each for Setting Fires to Lands of Another and Conspiracy, both felonies.
