Woman Blames Sleepwalking For Fire
A Lexington woman who told fire investigators she accidentally set her apartment on fire while sleepwalking was charged Monday with first-degree arson and attempted murder.
Lamonica Anganette Hill, 41, was being held in the Fayette County jail.
Hill and her juvenile son were living at the Circle View Apartments on Lima Drive when their apartment caught fire about 1 a.m. Sept. 13. Hill initially told firefighters she was sleepwalking and had a dream about grilling.
However, Lexington arson investigators found evidence that contradicted her story and indicated that the fire was intentionally set, Capt. Carrie Bowling said Monday at a news conference.
