LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The woman accused of setting a fire that killed a Louisville mother and her two children was back in court Monday.
A not guilty plea was entered for Danesha Peden on charges including murder and arson. Police say Peden intentionally set the fire on Dec. 5 at an apartment building on Shanks Lane near Cane Run Road after a domestic dispute.
Archie Riley, her 16-year-old daughter, Savannah Cooper, and 11-year-old son Kameron Harris all died.
Several others in the complex said they were forced to jump out of windows because flames blocked the front door.
A GoFundMe account has been set up to help the family. You can also donate at any Republic Bank through Southwest Family Ministries.
