MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) - A woman accused of torching her Mitchell home has pleaded not guilty to an attempted murder charge for allegedly trying to kill her husband.

The Daily Republic newspaper (https://bit.ly/2aDFkaH) reports that 38-year-old Dawn Long entered the not guilty plea Tuesday.

Long was charged late last year with setting fire to the house. She was recently indicted on an attempted murder charge, for allegedly trying to kill her husband, Todd Long.

An attorney for Dawn Long didn’t immediately return a message requesting comment.

Authorities say the fire damaged Long’s home on Oct. 8, 2015. She allegedly led law officers on a chase that day that ended when she crashed her vehicle and was hospitalized with serious injuries.

She was charged two months later with reckless burning, reckless driving and eluding.
