Jury hears evidence on fire investigation in Susan Lukjan trial

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- The jury in the second arson trial for Susan Lukjan received a lesson Friday on determining where fires begin.

Investigators showed the court pictures of Campbell's Gourmet Cottage in 2006 when it caught fire.  Officials say fire patterns helped them determine that the fire started in the basement.

Susan Lukjan's first arson conviction was overturned, and she is going to trial a second time to clear her name.

Prosecutors are trying to depict Lukjan as financially struggling and someone who wanted to cash in on insurance claims.
