BELTON — A Killeen woman was indicted Wednesday by a grand jury after she reportedly set multiple fires in her own home.

Ejean Miller, 56, of Killeen, was indicted on a felony charge of arson.

Fire investigators were initially called to Miller’s home in the 3800 block of Oak Valley Drive in Killeen in response to a structure fire Oct. 15, according to an arrest affidavit.

Inside the home, investigators observed multiple areas where fires were set throughout the house, including the living room, bathroom and master bedroom.

They found a half-full can of gasoline in the home’s garage, and a pile of burned men’s clothing in the bedroom, the affidavit stated.

Miller’s husband told investigators that he previously had an argument with his wife, and that she woke him up that day by striking him in the head with an unknown object, according to the arrest affidavit.

He left the home that day and went to a nearby convenience store to avoid a conflict.

He saw smoke, and then saw emergency vehicles headed in the direction of his home.

He returned to find the home on fire, the affidavit stated.

Miller’s daughter told investigators that her mother called her and said she set the house on fire.

Justice of the Peace Garland Potvin arraigned Miller Oct. 18. Potvin set her bail at $50,000.
