A LeRoy woman has been arrested and charged with allegedly trying to burn down an apartment, and endangering a child by losing control of herself.
37-year-old Christina Woika of Gilbert Street is charged with Reckless Endangerment and Endangering the Welfare of a Child.
LeRoy Police say two separate incidents led to the arrest. The first was on November 10th of last year. Woika allegedly placed a pile of clothing inside the oven at an friend’s apartment – a turned the oven on. The clothes started to burn. They were caught before any larger fire ensued.
Then on December 20th, Woika was apparently watching a child when she, quote, “allowed herself to become incoherent and incapable of caring for the child.” Woika had to be taken to the hospital in her condition. The child is apparently okay.
Woika is due in court later this month to answer the charges.
