Waterloo Police Department Sgt. Lee Marquart said Diana Fegley “became very angry with me” after he accused her of setting the fire she was rescued from in February 2017.
Marquart testified Wednesday during Fegley’s arson trial in Seneca County Court. He was one of the first people on the scene after the Inslee Street fire was reported about 5 p.m. Feb. 22, and he led the Waterloo PD investigation into the blaze.
Marquart said, earlier that afternoon, he and Waterloo PD Officer Kevin Higgins dealt with Fegley on a domestic issue involving her estranged husband, Andrew, who was living on East Kendig Street. Higgins testified that he talked to Diana Fegley, on Feb. 21 and 22, and she wanted police to get Andrew’s guns out of the Inslee Street house because she was afraid he might shoot her.
Higgins and Marquart testified that they talked to Andrew Fegley on Feb. 22, and he agreed to remove some unsecured guns out of the first floor of the Inslee Street house. Andrew Fegley also testified, saying those weapons were inoperable and just parts of weapons, and that operable weapons on the second floor were locked up.
Marquart said while Andrew Fegley was removing the guns and parts, Diana arrived at the house and was upset.
“She was yelling a lot of stuff and being disruptive,” Marquart said.
