PORT ANGELES, Wash. - Court documents filed in Clallam County Superior Court tie an alleged arson in an apartment complex to a smelly cat litter box.
Prosecutors on Wednesday charged Marie Adeline Calkins, 63, with first-degree arson, accusing her of setting a fire Tuesday in her apartment on South C Street. No one was injured.
She told officers she lit the fire because "she was depressed and upset that her kitty litter box was full and smelled," court papers said.
Judge George L. Wood set bail at $50,000 and ordered a mental health assessment.
