Resolution seems likely in Early Drive arson case

It appears attorneys are going to find a resolution for the arson case against the man accused of setting fire to a Pennyroyal Mental Health crisis house last year.

Brandon Seeley appeared in Christian Circuit Court Wednesday with defense attorney Eric Bearden, who agreed with Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Jerad Smith that the biggest roadblock right now is finding a place for Seeley to stay when he gets out.

Circuit Judge John Atkins set the next hearing for June 22, but told Seeley that could come sooner if the attorneys find a solution.

Seeley allegedly set fire to the home on Early Drive and a report says he told Hopkinsville police he did it in hopes of being sent to Western State Hospital, where it would be possible for him to set additional fires.

He is charged with first-degree arson.
