SENECA, Kan. (WIBW) - A former volunteer firefighter from Seneca who was charged with arson has waived his right to a preliminary hearing, according to KMZA Radio.

The man, David Frehe, was bound over for arraignment, which is scheduled for Aug. 5 in Nemaha County District Court in Seneca.

KMZA says Frehe is accused of setting two fires, including one on May 1, 2019, at a vacant dwelling in Seneca and another on Nov. 4, 2020, in a pasture in rural Nemaha County.

Frehe was charged with setting the fires after an investigation by the Nemaha County Sheriff’s Office, the Seneca Police Department and the State Fire Marshal’s Office.

KMZA said Frehe was arrested March 22 and remains free after posting a $10,000 bond.
