RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A Louisa county woman accused of arson is charged with setting another fire over the weekend. Last month, Felicia Armstrong allegedly started several fires at a church over the Martin Luther King holiday.

Court records show that Felicia Armstrong, 51, is now facing more than half a dozen charges.

Investigators say she set three fires at Saint John Baptist Church, on Zachary Taylor Highway. Saint John is a black church in the Mineral area. According to the Times Dispatch, she was released after these charges on $10,000 bond.

Late Saturday night, investigators say she struck again in her own neighborhood, setting fire to a storage facility belonging to the Bluewater Property Owner's Association.

The fire caused thousands of dollars in damages and destroyed files dating back 30 years and summer beach equipment.

Today, a motion was filed to revoke her bond on the original bond which the court granted.  Defense requested mental evaluation which the court granted.  Review on the mental evaluation was set for March 8 and preliminary hearing on April 12.
