Missouri Man Charged With Murder After House Fire Kills Teen
A 39-year-old man is charged with second-degree murder and arson in the death of a 16-year-old boy in a fire in a St. Louis suburb.
Bobby Copass is being held on $1 million bond in the death of Dustin Baggett in a fire Friday in Florissant. Baggett died Saturday after being injured in the fire on Friday.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports a relative said Copass set the fire after becoming angry when he was asked to move out of the family's home. The boy's mother escaped the fire but firefighters removed Baggett, who had autism, through a window.
Relatives decided to remove him from life support on Saturday.
