Wis. prosecutors add unborn homicide count in fire
Prosecutors have charged a southwestern Wisconsin father with killing his unborn child in a fire he allegedly set to wipe out his family.
According to court documents, Armin Wand III and his brother, Jeremy Wand, set a fire in Armin Wand's Argyle home in September in hopes of killing Armin Wand's pregnant wife and their four children.
Armin Wand's three sons perished in the fire. His wife managed to rescue their 2-year-old daughter but suffered injuries that family members said killed her unborn child.
The brothers face a host of charges, including multiple homicide counts and arson. State Justice Department attorneys added a count of first-degree intentional homicide of an unborn child against both of them on Nov. 15.
They're set to be arraigned Wednesday.
