Toledo woman indicted for insurance fraud


A Toledo woman charged with setting fire to a near-downtown duplex she owned has been indicted on a new charge of insurance fraud for allegedly filing a false claim for damages.

Dominique Ballard, 28, of 4313 Walker Ave. is accused of setting a fire Nov. 6, 2013, at a duplex at 626 South Ave. then filing a claim for belongings she reported had been lost in the fire.

Prosecutors said firefighters said the two-story structure appeared to be vacant at the time. Charges of aggravated arson and arson are pending against Ms. Ballard, who has a pretrial hearing in that case and an arraignment on the new charge Friday before Judge Michael Goulding.
