DETROIT LAKES, Minn. (KFGO AM) -- The attorney for a Becker County man accused of killing a woman in a house fire has asked for more time to build a defense.

48-year-old Charles Jones of Ponsford is accused of murdering 35-year-old Shalonda Clark by setting their house on fire.

When police asked Jones where Clark was, he said she was inside the burning house and that he had set it on fire while she was sleeping.

A hearing is scheduled for March 10th, giving the defense time to review all documents before Jones enters a plea.
