A Bremerton woman was arrested Friday on suspicion of arson and murder.
The 45-year-old woman is in Kitsap County Jail for her alleged role in starting a fire last month that killed a 37-year-old man and engulfed an East Bremerton house.
The suspect and victim were involved in a long-term relationship and were guests at the house, according to the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office. The victim was asleep during the early morning hours when the fire swept through the house. Others in the house escaped.
Bail for the suspect was initially set at $1 million, according to the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office.
