Arson Suspect in Court

The countdown to the trial of the man accused of setting St. Raphael's Cathedral on fire continues.

That fire gutted the historic Madison Cathedral. William Connell is charged with arson and burglary. Police say he told them he started the fire at the church.

During Friday's pre-trial hearing, Connell refused to admit to a doctor's examination, so the judge then issued the order for Connell to do so.

Jury selection for his trial is set for mid–August.
