Warrants filed against 2 more in S. Indiana house fire that killed 3 kids

NEW ALBANY, Ind. - Just days after a teenager pleaded not guilty to causing a fire that killed three children last month in southern Indiana, police said they put out warrants on two others linked to the fire.

Wednesday, not-guilty pleas were entered for Cody Cashion, 18, of New Albany, Ind. Cashion faces three felony counts of murder for allegedly firing a flare gun into a New Albany home and igniting a fire that killed three kids. He also faces an arson charge.

Friday, local police said warrants had been filed against two more people. The two new suspects were reportedly in the car with Cashion when, prosecutors believe, he fired the flare gun at the house.

There has been no word from investigators on the identity of the two people, but officials said they will be charged with conspiracy to commit arson. At last check, the two hadn't been arrested.

The fire was originally thought to have been caused by a space heater, but officials later found new evidence that suggested arson as the cause.

Police said they believe Cashion did not know the kids were in the home at the time.
