A judge entered a not guilty plea for a woman charged with arson and felony murder in connection with a man found dead after a fire at his home. Roni Anderson is charged with arson for allegedly setting the fire that killed Harold Ambrosius on June 12, 2015. She stood mute at her arraignment Monday, so Judge Tim Hinkfuss entered a not guilty plea for her, according to court records. No trial date was scheduled; she returns to court Nov. 8 for a status conference. According to a criminal complaint, several witnesses and emergency responders told police they pulled up to the fire and saw Anderson kneeling over Ambrosius' lifeless body in the front yard. Some witnesses told police Anderson wouldn't let anyone try to help Ambrosius. One witness told police Anderson was 'incoherent and was wailing.' The witness called Anderson's actions 'not genuine and almost as if it was something she thought she needed to do' and that she 'never saw any tears.' However, Anderson told police she believed Ambrosius started the fire on purpose and she felt that he tried to kill her. She is also charged with arson for a separate fire at an office building.
