We'll find out Monday (June 13, 2005) how Jeremy Van Ert will answer three counts of arson in Wood County court. He'll enter pleas to those, plus to three first-degree recklessly endangering safety charges.

One of those fires happened at Magic Moments Bridal Shop in downtown Marshfield a couple of months ago.

Van Ert was in the news last week too, when the Marshfield News Herald reported he tried to hang himself in his jail cell with a bed sheet. He was then taken to a health care center for mental testing.

Court is set for 3 p.m.
