Killeen Fire Marshall’s Office Arrest Two For Arson

On December 17, 2013, at approximately 12:30am, the Killeen Fire Department was dispatched to the Starlite Station located at 3310 S Ft Hood St in reference to a fire alarm.

The preliminary investigation revealed that several fires were intentionally set within the structure causing moderate and minor fire damage to the manager’s office and other locations within the facility to include water damage.

The Killeen Fire Marshal’s Office and the Killeen Police Department Burglary Detectives later determined that a previous burglary had occurred on December 3, 2013, where the suspects’ objective was to obtain cash from the clubs safe and intentionally set fire in order to destroy evidence and security footage.

This case was reviewed by the Bell County District Attorney’s Office and a complaint was returned charging 34 year old William R. Twist of Killeen and 20 year old Jacob H. Lugmayer of Fort Hood with Arson; their bond was set at $50,000.00 each. Mr. Twist is currently at the Bell County Jail and Mr. Lugmayer will be transferred there later today.
