Accused Box Elder arsonist denied bond reduction


A Box Elder man accused of burning down his mobile home is denied a bond reduction.

Joseph Hodges, 29, charged with arson and reckless burning is being held on a $100,000 bond.

Authorities say Hodges poured gasoline throughout the home and set it afire on Oct. 25th while his girlfriend and her ex husband were still inside.

No one was hurt.

Judge Janine Kern denied Hodges' request for a bond reduction citing his suicidal tendencies and mental instability.
