Prospect man charged with arson in house explosion

Medford, Ore. — A Prospect man who’s home exploded last April, makes his first appearance in court. Michael McNall was told on Friday that he would go to jail if bail was not posted by the end of the day.

“Security has been previously set at a sum of $50,000,” Jackson County Judge Patricia Crain said.

McNall’s lawyer, Peter Carini, responded that it would be taken care of.

McNall is facing charges of first degree arson and attempted aggravated theft in the first degree. They stem from an incident in April, when McNall’s house on the 200-block of Flounce Rock road exploded.

NBC5 News obtained court documents filed by the Jackson County District Attorney’s Office. They allege McNall intentionally damaged property at the house, and the same day, attempted to commit theft of money, valued at over $10,000.

McNall is expected to be back in court for a hearing on March 13th.
