Arson suspect pleads not guilty

GREENVILLE – Cody Bailey, 19, pleaded not guilty Aug. 4 to Felony 4 Arson stemming from charges he started fires with lighter fluid July 15. Bailey’s attorney, Randy Breaden, Greenville, asked for his client to be released on his own recognizance as he has no prior record as an adult and only a couple minor charges as a juvenile. Darke County Assistant Prosecutor Deborah Quigley said she felt the bond remained appropriate until he had established housing.

Breaden told Darke County Common Pleas Judge Jonathan Hein Bailey was currently looking for a stable place to stay if released. Hein then asked Bailey, in a video hearing from the Darke County jail, if he had found such a place. Bailey said he had. Hein obtained the details then noted bond would continue until he had more information on the family and location. Hein set a status hearing on the arson charge for Aug. 25.
