Krystal Gonzalez Trial
The arson trial for a woman accused of setting fire to a D’iberville apartment complex is currently in session. Jury for the case was selected this morning for Krystal Gonzalez’s trail in Biloxi.
The trial is still ongoing with prosecutors presenting several diagrams of the apartments as well as playing the first 19 minutes of the 9-1-1 call.
Gonzalez is charged with first-degree arson for a fire that destroyed 20 units at Arbor View Apartments, displacing 40 residents on Mardi Gras night in 2014. Gonzalez claims the fire happened after she left a candle burning. However, D’iberville police investigators claim Gonzalez intentionally set the fire to burn her ex-boyfriend’s belongings.
