BEDFORD, Pa. (WTAJ) — Police arrested a woman for arson Thursday after she lit a bible on fire in an attempt to burn down her apartment building.
Police say that 47-year-old Rochelle Ondesko made threats to burn her apartment building down after an argument with a neighbor over a $20 loan she wanted paid back.
Ondesko allegedly tried using a lighter then resorted to her stove top and let the Bible burn while taking a nap, before eventually putting the fire out.
Neighbors called police when they smelled smoke.
Police say Ondesko was suicidal and was put into protective custody following the incident.
