KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- The suspect in a fire that killed two Kansas City firefighters is asking for a reduction in her $2 million cash bond.

The Kansas City Star reports lawyers for Thu Hong Nguyen made the request Thursday in Jackson County Court. The judge set a Dec. 3 bond reduction hearing.

Nguyen owned a nail salon in a building that caught fire Oct. 12. Firefighters Larry Leggio and John Mesh died while fighting the fire, which court documents indicate stated in a storage room of her business.

Nguyen has pleaded not guilty to two counts of second-degree murder and one count of first-degree arson.

One of her attorneys, Bill Shull, said Nguyen has a health issue that has caused her to fall twice in custody and suffer convulsions and seizures.
