Woman allegedly set minivan fire with kids inside

Posted: Updated:

ELIZABETH, N.J. (AP) - Attempted murder charges have been filed against a woman who allegedly set her minivan on fire while two children were inside the vehicle.

Acting Union County Prosecutor Grace Park announced Tuesday that Narcissa Zuber, 48, of Cranford, also faces aggravated arson and child endangerment charges stemming from the fire. But Park declined to provide further details on the case.

Zuber was arrested Friday after she was released from a hospital. She remained jailed Tuesday on $800,000 bail.

Park said Zuber allegedly set the minivan on fire along a stretch of the Garden State Parkway in Clark late last month. Zuber and the two children all suffered undisclosed injuries in the fire.

Park said the children have been released from the hospital and continue to recover.

    For decades, making some quick cash was the main drive behind so many who took the ride down the parkway to Atlantic City. But with so much to choose from nowadays, it looks like Atlantic City is in a lot of trouble.
