ST. THOMAS, N.D. (AP) - A St. Thomas man accused of shooting a man he found in his home with his wife is denying setting fire to his estranged wife’s home.

Thirty-one-year-old Brandon Thompson late last month was charged with arson, criminal mischief, disobeying a judicial order and simple assault. Defense attorney Robert Fleming says Thompson will plead not guilty.

Fleming says he’s confident that investigators will determine the fire damage was accidental.

The new charges are on top of earlier charges of attempted murder, aggravated assault, terrorizing and reckless endangerment in the Oct. 13 shooting.
