A Kentucky man was charged with starting a fire that killed two people and injured at least six in Frankfort last month, according to authorities.
The Louisville Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, said a Frankfort man was arrested on state charges related to a Spet. 30 arson at Leawood Square apartments. Ibrahim Muhammad, 23, was booked into the Franklin County Detention Center last week on charges of murder, first-degree arson, first-degree wanton endangerment and first-degree assault.
He is being held on a $1 million bond.
The fire was started intentionally, where Zephany Rushin, 21, Quiana Danyel Miller-Walker, 20, died while about six others were hurt, according to the Lexington Herald Leader.
"The arson directly resulted in the death of two individuals and the serious injury of others,” investigators told LEX 18 News.
“The investigative team conducted a thorough investigation resulting in additional information and evidence that the fire was caused by an intentional criminal act."
Police have not revealed what evidence they collected or why they believe Muhammad started the fire.
