19-year-old charged with murder, arson

A 19-year-old man is in jail tonight charged with first degree murder of a 19-year-old woman he knew and whose body was found in the St. Catharines basement apartment he set on fire, police say.

Madeline Hood’s life ended sometime before fire fighters were dispatched to an East Hampton Road residence around 6 p.m. Saturday.

Cassell Farnsworth is also charged with arson with disregard for human life, suggesting other parts of the building were occupied when the fire started.

Cause of death has not been released.

A bail hearing will be held on Monday.
