TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Ray Abou-Arab appeared in court Monday morning, where he was arraigned on two counts each of aggravated arson and aggravated murder in the death of two Toledo firefighters.
Bond has been set at $5 million for Abou-Arab - $2 million for each murder charge and $500,000 for each arson charge. Abou-Arab did not enter a plea and returned to the Lucas County Jail.
Another hearing is set for Wednesday to discuss a request made by the defense that Toledo Police Department secure, protect and preserve the crime scene so that experts can conduct chemical tests and analysis. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Feb. 10.
Two firefighters were killed when a fire broke out around 2:45 p.m. at Abou-Arab's six-unit apartment building in the 500 block of Magnolia Street in Toledo's north end.
Toledo Municipal Court documents say Abou-Arab, 61, entered the garage where he remained for more than a minute. He then entered a store front at the same location. Immediately after Abou-Arab left the garage, an occupant of the rear apartment adjacent to the garage noticed the wall structure was on fire. 911 was called and Toledo Fire & Rescue units responded.
According to the Toledo mayor's office, Abou-Arab is suspected of using an ignitable liquid inside of the garage.
Around 40 firefighters and other supporters gathered at the Toledo Fire Union Local 92 Hall on Washington Street Monday morning to march to Toledo Municipal Court and attend the arraignment. Union President Jeffery Romstadt said the firefighters wanted to make sure they supported their fallen brothers in court.
