39-year-old Monica Berlin from El Granada, CA, USA, is now in custody and awaiting a court hearing, reports the DILL.
The first fire, a woman staged on June 26 at a field near the city of Half moon Bay, California. The flames burned 900 bales $ 10 $ 800, writes Metro. On the question of why she staged the first arson, Monica came up with a strange excuse. She stated that she wanted to stop the zombie Apocalypse.
A week later, Monica went to the same field and repeated his crime — fire damaged 765 bales of hay in the amount of $ 9810. This time justificatory theory supplemented with: woman tried thus to prevent a “cult of mass murder.”
The police have established the fact of arson: bales of hay were on fire on top and had traces of a combustible substance. As well as the identity of the suspect. Police had to chase Monica, who was traveling at a speed of 160 km/h, to hold her. At this point, she was broadcasting live on Facebook with the words that have done nothing wrong. After the arrest the woman denied the charges of arson.
Now Monica is in custody awaiting trial and will have to undergo a psychiatric examination. Her bail was set at $ 100 thousand dollars. Prosecutors insist on filing serious charges, as the burning could threaten the lives of others.
