Peter will be able to serve his home confinement at a house near his destroyed home, said his attorney, Michael Hissam.
"It's across the street that he can rent, and it has utilities and a land line," Hissam said. "It's a property they had lived in once before."
Stephanie, who had a preliminary hearing scheduled Monday in Jackson County Magistrate Court, had that hearing postponed until May 29. Hissam said while it's possible she, too, may request home confinement, she would have to live somewhere else.
Hissam said Peter's case was sent to a Jackson County grand jury last year after his arrest, but he has yet to be indicted.
"The grand jury has three terms to indict him, and the third term is coming up June 25," Hissam said. "If they don't indict, the case has to be dismissed."
Those accused of burning the farmhouse had been hired by the Lizons to help feed their animals while they were incarcerated. But Hissam said they kept asking for more money and Peter let them go.
"A week after he fired (Colena Martin), they were robbed blind," Hissam said of the Lizons. "And now they are suspected in this fire."Contact writer Cheryl Caswell at cher...@dailymail.com or 304-348-4832.
