Evansville Arson Site Demolished

The scene of a deadly arson near downtown Evansville is bulldozed today.

29 West Franklin is now a pile of rubble. Crews tore down what was left of the two-story apartment complex that burned down March 17.

Donald Lankford, Keri Jones and her three year-old daughter Jazmine were all killed.

32 year-old Christopher Compton is set to go on trial for that fire later this year. He faces three counts of murder and several counts of arson.

He has entered a defense of mental disease or defect.
