|New details in the case of the former Elmira
woman accused of causing the fire that killed four
of her children in her Rochester home.
According to the criminal complaint, Bobbie
Kugler recklessly caused the fire. The complaint
says Kugler was burning pictures of her boyfriend,
then throwing them on a dresser |filled with
combustible materials.| As WENY TV News reported
Friday, Rochester police arrested Kugler and
charged her with arson and four counts of
Four of her children, 14 old Gage
Reavey, 13 year old Greg Kugler, 12 year old
Kandee Kugler and six year old Kaiden Kugler died
in the fire. Bobbie Kugler and her two year old
son Tyron escaped from the home.
Kugler's mother and stepfather say they
haven't talked to Bobbie since she was arrested,
but don't believe the details in the complaint.
|I can believe there was some kind of
accident that happened, but as far as it being any
kind of intentional thing, that I don't believe.
And it also doesn't make any sense the fire
department says the fire started in the back and
her bedroom was in the front.|
Kugler was arraigned Saturday in Rochester;
she's pleaded not guilty. She remains in jail on
$300,000 cash bail.
