Box Elder man to enter arson plea of not guilty by reason of insanity

Posted:

A Box Elder man accused of arson and reckless burning will officially change his plea to not guilty by reason of insanity.

Joseph Hodges, 29, is accused of setting his house on fire when his girlfriend and her ex-husband were still inside.

Two, separate psychiatric exams point to the same conclusion: Hodges was insane at the time of the crime.

The doctors who performed the tests will testify in front of Judge Janine Kern on July 19th.
