EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

The man accused of killing three people in a West Franklin Street fire appeared in court Friday afternoon.

The prosecution filed four more charges of arson against Christopher Compton, bringing the total number of arson charges to 14.

Compton's attorney asked for a change of venue, but the judge took it under advisement and will decide on July 11.

Compton is also charged with three counts of murder.

28-year-old Keri Jones, 76-year-old Donald Lankford, and Keri's three-year-old daughter, Jazmine, died in the fire last March.
