An arson case out of Saline County, will continue with the setting of a trial or plea Monday morning.

A not-guilty plea has already been entered by Justin Roettgen, who is charged with 2nd degree arson, and the burning of a residence on Gordon Street.

Investigation by the State Fire Marshall determined a wall had been doused in fuel and ignited. Fire damage was kept to the garage. The rest of the home appeared to have been ransacked, and the victim stated it was not that way before the fire.
