The suspect accused of starting the fire that burned two historical churches in Douglas made his first appearance in a federal court this week.
58-year-old Eric Ridenour faces arson charges; he could spend up to 25 years in prison if convicted.
Ridenour appeared in court for a bond hearing on Wednesday, May 31. However, the hearing was pushed back because Ridenour’s attorney was unable to attend a screening interview with pre-trial services.
The hearing was rescheduled for next week, and is expected to include statements from victims affected by the fires.
