ONEIDA COUNTY (WAOW) - Pamela Matt pleaded not guilty Wednesday, by reasons of mental disease or defect, to arson charges.

Police say the Rhinelander woman poured gasoline in her basement, lit it and left without telling her son, who was asleep at the time. 

The court ordered an evaluation and scheduled a status conference for January 4, 2012.

Matt is charged with arson and first degree recklessly endangering safety.

She's also charged with arson of a building without the owner's consent.
