A 9-year-old child accused of causing a mobile home fire that killed three children and two adults in central Illinois in the US has been charged with five counts of first-degree murder.

The juvenile was also charged with two counts of arson and one count of aggravated arson.

The fire killed a 1-year-old, two 2-year-olds, a 34-year-old man and a 69-year-old woman.

Woodford County State's Attorney Greg Minger would not reveal other details about the suspect, including a possible relationship to the victims.

Minger says that no arrest warrant has been issued for the suspect and the suspect will be appointed an attorney and will be subject to a bench trial, in front of a judge.
