STAFFORD, VA (WWBT) -

A woman faces several charges after setting her home on fire earlier this month, says the Stafford County Sheriff's Office.

Lisa Bartosch is charged with attempted first-degree murder, aggravated malicious wounding, and arson. Investigators say on May 1, the 52-year-old woman set fire to the Hampton Oaks home on Devonshire Lane. Firefighters reported the fire started in the upstairs hallway, and the flames spread all throughout the second floor.

Investigators say a few days after Lisa Bartosch was incarcerated, her husband, 51-year-old Scott Michael Bartosch Jr., died from injuries he suffered in the fire.

Both were injured by the fire and were taken to the hospital. Investigators believed the fire started from a domestic incident.

The family is now preparing for a funeral for their father and a murder trial for their mother.

The Sheriff's Office says additional charges are coming.
