A former Kentucky State University student who allegedly set fire to the door of another KSU student’s dorm room has been indicted on an arson charge.
Juanisha Feliciano, 19, sprayed an accelerant on the door of a female student, who hasn’t been identified, at Chandler Hall and ignited it around 5:20 a.m. April 24, Commonwealth’s Attorney Larry Cleveland and state police say.
The unknown accelerant wasn’t gasoline, Cleveland said.
The blaze burned the door and floor of the dorm room, but the woman inside had no major injuries, Cleveland said.
“That person suffered some smoke inhalation,” Cleveland said. “She was taken to the hospital and treated and released.”
But what started the fire is still unclear. Cleveland says he believes the two have “some bad blood” between them.
“… Over what, I don’t know, but they apparently had some disagreement in the recent past,” Cleveland said.
Feliciano, of Louisville, turned herself in May 2 when police named her a suspect in the case.
She no longer attends KSU, according to Cleveland.
Feliciano faces a charge of first-degree arson. She’s not in custody, online jail records show.
Others indicted by the grand jury include:
>William Hornbeck, 34, on two separate burglaries and thefts of tools at the Frankfort Country Club and Franklin County Road Department, according to Cleveland.
Hornbeck broke into the country club April 17 and stole a weed eater, two chainsaws, hedge trimmer and blower, Cleveland said. The estimated value of the stolen tools is $1,675.
“Three of those items were recovered from a pawn shop where he’d taken them to pawn,” Cleveland said, noting $835 in stolen property had been recovered.
About a month later, Hornbeck broke into the county road department May 10 and stole $4,351 in chainsaws, concrete saws and a weed eater, Cleveland said.
None of those items have been recovered, he said.
Hornbeck has admitted to the thefts, Cleveland says.
Hornbeck was indicted on similar charges May 11 after he allegedly broke into the former RJ Industries building with another and caused $50,000 in damages and lost property. He’s accused of stealing and selling metal in that case.
Hornbeck faces two counts each of third-degree burglary, theft by unlawful taking and being a persistent felon.
He was convicted of receiving stolen property in Franklin Circuit Court Feb. 9.
Hornbeck is in Franklin County Regional Jail on a $50,000 bond.
>Candace Ramge, 29, of Jeffersonville, Ind., attempting to obtain controlled substance by fraud or false statement and being a persistent felon.
She was convicted of the same charge in Jefferson Circuit Court in February 2009.
>Cynthia Emmons, 31, of Owenton, possession of oxycodone, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, theft by unlawful taking and resisting arrest.
>Charles Moberly, 57, of East Bernstadt, theft by failure to make required disposition of property and theft by deception.
