Jocelyn Ontiveros was booked into the Dona Ana County jail Friday night on suspicion of multiple charges, including arson with intent to commit a violent felony and child abuse resulting in death.

Ontiveros' arrest stems from the Dec. 13 fire in which Marisa Munoz was killed and two other children were hospitalized with burns.

New Mexico State Fire Marshal investigators found evidence the fire was set intentionally.

Court records don't list an attorney for Ontiveros who could comment on the allegations.
