A 35 year old inmate at the LaPorte County Jail was charged with felony arson Wednesday after a 4th of July fire in a cell located in the south side of the jail. Marzano Shelly, of Michigan City, who was being held in the jail while awaiting trial for murder, robbery, and other charges, was taken to Indiana University Health, in LaPorte for possible smoke inhalation, and authorities accuse him of setting fire to a mattress using a cigarette lighter, which is prohibited in the jail. No evacuation resulted due to the fire but did result with inmates in the immediate cell block area being relocated to another secure area within the jail.
