MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) - A woman accused of torching her Mitchell home is now also accused of trying to kill her husband.

Thirty-eight-year-old Dawn Long was charged late last year with setting fire to the house. The Daily Republic newspaper reports (https://bit.ly/2ayeshC ) that she was recently indicted on an attempted murder charge, for allegedly trying to kill her husband, Todd Long.

It isn’t clear if she has an attorney, and a home telephone listing for her couldn’t be found.

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.
