A Couple Facing Charges for Burning Barns in Indiana Is also Accused of Setting Fire to an Amish School

A couple accused of torching eight barns last year in a northern Indiana county now face charges alleging that they also set fire to an Amish school in an adjacent county.

Joseph Hershberger, 41, and Sherry Thomas, 32, were charged in December in Elkhart County with eight counts of arson for the barn burnings, the first of which occurred in April 2021. They have both entered not guilty pleas.
