A woman whose father was killed in a Springfield Township condominium fire last year was arrested today in Houston on murder charges.

Kenya McGhee, 37, is charged with two counts each of murder and aggravated arson, and one count of aggravated murder.

Ms. McGhee, who jumped from a second-story window to escape the fire, breaking a leg, was indicted by a Lucas County grand jury, officials said.

The suspect was arrested by the U.S. Marshals at about 10:30 a.m.

Lucas County Sheriff's Detective Phil Williams could not comment on what led investigators to Ms. McGhee and he declined to comment on a motive.

He said Ms. McGhee is "at this point, she is the only suspect, but there could be some others involved in it."

Killed in the March, 2012, blaze at Hidden Cedars Condominiums were Olandia Keith Dixon, 58, and Robert McGhee, 61.
