Police: Woman set fire to home with foreclosure documents



Published: Wed, July 27, 2011 @ 10:30 a.m.

CORRY, Pa. (AP) — Police say a northwestern Pennsylvania woman tried to smother her adult son then attempted suicide after setting fire to her home with a foreclosure notice.

The Erie Times-News reports 47-year-old Eve Shreve was arraigned Tuesday on charges including attempted homicide and arson in the March 18 fire in Corry.

Police say Shreve’s husband told officers his wife had admitted setting the fire using foreclosure papers received the day before and then attempted to kill herself. Investigators say medical records support their case.

Corry Police Chief Fred Corbett says authorities also determined the two small fires were intentionally set.

Shreve was released on $5,000 bail.
