Judge Orders Psychiatric Exam For Centralia Man Charged With Residential Arson
Public Defender Timothy Huyett filed the motion on behalf of Shawn Reichenbach. Reichenbach remains in custody at the Marion County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bond. A status hearing on the evaluation was set for February 19th.
Reichenbach is accused of using a lighter to set a container of ether on fire. The blaze spread through the large living room of the home at 902 Chipwood Lane off Raccoon Lake owned by his mother Judith McIntire.
McIntire and Reichenbach's wife were already outside the home after Shawn reportedly had become agitated with them. Reichenbach had challenged police to shoot him when coming out of the burning home acting like he had something in the waistband of his pants, but reportedly calmed down and was handcuffed after police told him to stop acting stupid.
