Norfolk Arson Case Headed to District Court

MADISON – A Lincoln woman accused of a string of crimes in Norfolk and Pierce is headed to district court.

25-year old Rachel Church waived her preliminary hearing in Madison County Court on Tuesday.

Church faces felony arson and theft charges related to an incident that began at a Norfolk apartment earlier this month.

Police say Church set a mattress on fire in a Norfolk apartment, before stealing a truck from an adjacent apartment complex and driving it into Pierce County, where she wrecked the vehicle.

Church will be arraigned in District Court on May 17th.
