The 27-year-old Boisvert has been charged with two counts of first-degree assault and three counts of arson. His case has been referred to the public defender's office.

Boisvert's case on Tuesday was bound over to Grafton Superior Court.

His twin sister, Andrea Gilbert, was charged with falsifying physical evidence, accused of trying to erase information from her cellphone in the investigation. Her case also was bound over to superior court with at $20,000 bail.
