Woman faces attempted murder, arson, animal abuse charges

A 32-year-old woman faces attempted murder, arson, animal abuse and car theft charges after allegedly lighting a pickup truck and camper trailer — that was occupied by a woman and her two dogs — on fire earlier this month.

Porsha Marie Weaver, 32, of Bonzana, was arrested by the Klamath County Sheriff’s Office June 4.

The incident occurred near Bluebill Lane and Wigeon Drive. According to police, they were greeted by a woman who told them Weaver intentionally lit a truck and occupied trailer on fire and then fled the scene in a stolen motor vehicle.

The stolen car was recovered, but Weaver eluded police until she turned herself in at the Klamath sheriff’s office June 8.

Weaver is charged with attempted murder, arson in the first degree, animal abuse in the first degree, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and criminal mischief in the first degree.
