    Police in the Vermont community of Morristown say two women have been charged with attempted murder for allegedly setting fire to a house occupied by a family.

    Thirty-five-year-old Leola Bell and 40-year-old Tina Cole pleaded not guilty on Friday to attempted first-degree murder and first-degree arson charges.

    Police say no one was injured, but the residence was damaged.
