Ind. Decisions - $5,000 bail set for Kristine Bunch [Updated]

Updating this ILB entry from yesterday, Charles Wilson of the AP has this first report on this afternoon's bail hearing:

GREENSBURG, Ind. — An Indiana woman convicted of setting a 1995 fire that killed her 3-year-old son is to be released for the first time after 16 years in prison.

A Decatur County judge set bail for 38-year-old Kristine Bunch at $5,000 cash Wednesday. The state Court of Appeals ordered a new trial for Bunch on murder and arson charges after evidence against her was called into question.

[Updated at 3:52 PM] Here now is an updated, longer version of Charles Wilson's story.
