An arraignment was held for a woman after she's charged with setting her father's house on fire.

Donda Hurst remains behind bars after a judge denied her bond.

Deputies say she set her fathers house on fire when he said that she could no longer live there.

Chief Investigator Tim Watkins said, "She had been evicted from the residence and she was mad and made a statement that if she couldn't live there that no one else would be able to live there and that's why we think she set the house on fire."

Deputies say when her father told her to leave the house Donda attempted to cook a meal setting the house on fire causing damage in the kitchen area.

Tim Watkins added, "We actually believed that she poured extra cooking oil around the kitchen area of the house while they were actually cooking in the house and that ignited and set the kitchen on fire."

Donda was previously arrested with possession of meth and mistreating her children. The judge denied her bond and Donda remains in jail charged with first degree arson.
