CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A student at the College of Mount St. Joseph has been indicted for allegedly setting a series of fires at the school.

Jorden Cullen, 18, has been indicted on two counts of aggravated arson. If convicted, she faces up to 18 years in prison.

Cullen is accused of setting a series of fires on the morning of March 5 in the Art Building and the Seton Center, causing about $20,000 in damage.

A student at the college, Daviene Hutsell, died during all the events, but her cause of death has been ruled a heart attack.

"Arson in a populated setting is a very serious crime as it has a high potential for loss of life," said Prosecutor Joe Deters.
