The Associated Press

        DAYTON, Ohio — A 19-year-old woman said she lighted the match that set a 38-year-old woman on fire after she had been bound and doused with gasoline, according to a detective.

        Cynthia Mae Harrison's account emerged at a hearing Tuesday in Montgomery County Juvenile Court.

        Ms. Harrison is charged with delinquency by reason of aggravated murder. She implicated two others in the July 1, 1999, death of Ranae Ann Nurrenbrock.

        A judge is considering whether Ms. Harrison, 17 at the time, should be tried as an adult.
