The woman who police say tried to extort money from an apartment fire victim will be released from jail.

According to an arrest warrant, Natasha Rodgers accused a woman of starting a deadly fire at Sierra Meadows Apartments last month without any evidence.

Police say she then demanded $300 from her. When the victim didn’t respond, Rogers allegedly threatened to have her killed. Friday, Judge Christine Rodriguez called the allegations concerning but released her on strict conditions.
