BULLETIN: "Ind. mom convicted in son's death could be freed," published by The Associated Press on August 20, 2012.

GIST: "An attorney for an Indiana mother convicted of setting a 1996 fire that killed her 3-year-old son expects her to be released on bond this week as she awaits a new trial on charges of murder and arson. ........The state appeals court on Friday ordered a Decatur County court to either reinstate Bunch's original $5,000 bond or hold a new bond hearing by Wednesday afternoon. The appeals court overturned the 38-year-old woman's conviction in March after her lawyers argued new science shows there was no evidence of arson in the mobile home fire."
