LANIER COUNTY, GA (WALB) - 17-year-old Monolito Camon is accused of setting a fire that killed LaQuinta Bowens back on February 4th.

Investigators say Camon and 20-year-old Antonio McCutchin used a Molotov Cocktail to set fire to Bowens' home.

Six people were inside at the time. Bowens' aunt was disfigured by the flames.

The state requested Camon's bond to be set at one million dollars. The Lanier County Court granted him a bond of $500,000.

McCutchin remains in jail without bond.
