SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (CBS Connecticut and AP) – A Connecticut woman charged with setting a deadly fire in Massachusetts while high on PCP has been ruled too dangerous to be released on bail.
The Republican newspaper reports that 20-year-old Iris Larregui, of Hartford, is charged with arson in connection with a Nov. 20 house fire in Springfield that killed a 32-year-old woman and displaced about eight other residents. She has pleaded not guilty.
Larregui’s arrest report says she was found laughing and running naked down a street while proclaiming that she was God and was “burning down the world.”
At the request of her lawyer she was examined by a court clinician who determined she is competent to stand trial.
A judge ruled Wednesday that Larregui can be held without bail for at least 120 days.
