A Fort Scott man who was seriously injured in a fire that killed his wife is jailed on $1 million bond after being charged with murder.

Prosecutors say 25-year-old Brent Bollinger is charged with first-degree murder, aggravated arson, and aggravated child endangerment.

His wife, Brenna Nicole Bollinger was found dead after a fire at the couple's home last Oct. 13. Their 2-year-old son, Bryson Bollinger, was hospitalized for treatment of burns for about a month after the fire.

Bollinger's attorney, Paul Morrison, said during a court appearance Monday that Bollinger suffered burns over 69 percent of this body and has undergone several surgeries. He also said prosecutors have only a circumstantial case against his client.

The next court date will be Feb. 9.
