Statement can be used against Lake Christine fire suspect
ASPEN, Colo. — Prosecutors will be able to use incriminating statements made by a man charged in connection with a wildfire that destroyed three homes in western Colorado but only if he and his girlfriend are tried separately. While being questioned at a shooting range near Basalt after the fire started in July, prosecutors say 24-year-old Richard Miller told a sheriff's deputy that 23-year-old Allison Marcus had been firing incendiary tracer rounds from a rifle borrowed from Miller's father.
