Not guilty by insanity, man arrested on warrant from Marion County arson case

MARION COUNTY — A 43-year-old former Centralia man is in the Marion County Jail after being arrested earlier this week on an outstanding warrant stemming from a 2006 case charging him with aggravated arson knowing people present.

Bail on the warrant for Lloyd Wills III was set at $100,000. He was arrested Tuesday by Clinton County Sheriff’s deputies who he told he was homeless.

Nearly a year after the 2006 fire, Wills was found not guilty by reason of insanity and was placed in custody of the Department of Human Services for treatment.

After receiving treatment for approximately four years, Wills was allowed conditional visits home but violated the terms of that conditional release and a $100,000 warrant was issued for his arrest.

Wills was remanded back into DHS custody for further treatment.

He was again released under conditional discharge in 2016, but last month probable cause was reportedly found for his arrest and a $100,000 warrant for his arrest was again issued based upon reports from his treatment provider.
