Compton in court
The Evansville man accused of starting a fire that claimed three lives is due in court today. Christopher Compton is facing three counts of murder and 13 counts of arson. He's also accused of being an habitual offender. Police say Compton admitted he set the blaze on West Franklin Street that killed three people, including a child.
We expect to learn more today about a body of a woman found inside an SUV that was pulled from the Ohio River. Hardin County Coroner Jessica Cullum says sonar equipment found the vehicle Thursday afternoon. Authorities have not confirmed whether the body is that of 39 year old Chrisandra Williams missing since last December.
