Mitchell Simon: Liberty Township teen who set his home on fire charged with attempted murder

LIBERTY TWP., Ohio -- The 16-year-old boy accused of trying to kill his parents in Liberty Township was indicted on three charges by a grand jury on Wednesday.

Mitchell Simon, 16, has been charged with two counts of attempted aggravated murder and one count of aggravated arson. 

He was arrested in November for what police call a "cold and calculated plot" in which he is accused of locking his parents in their bedroom and setting their Tarragon Court home on fire as a plan to murder them.

Despite the situation, his mother still stands by his side saying she just "doesn't believe it."
