SAN ANTONIO (May 21, 2014) A 19-year-old San Antonio woman is accused of setting her family's house on fire in an alleged insurance scam that left her brother dead and father hurt, police said.
Miranda Herrera was arrested Tuesday night on a warrant charging capital murder and attempted capital murder.
Police also arrested a second suspect who was 16 at the time of the fire in December.
Charges were pending.
