SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. – A man who is accused of setting a woman’s home on fire after attacking her faced a judge for the third time in a week on Friday afternoon.
A judge ordered Justin Lorrison, 29, to be held without bond on a long list of new charges — two counts of first-degree arson, grand theft of a motor vehicle, animal torture by felony infliction of pain, attempted homicide, burglary and aggravated battery of a person 65 years or older, among other minor charges.
“I find that you are a danger to the community and a flight risk,” the judge said.
These charges come after Winter Springs police said Lorrison attacked a woman, with whom he has a domestic relationship, Thursday morning. Investigators said the 29-year-old then set her apartment on fire and took off in her van.
According to police, the victim called authorities around 2:20 a.m. saying she was bleeding heavily from the neck and there was smoke at her Seville on the Green apartment.
In a 911 call, the woman said she was attacked by a family member.
