Mom Claims Agent Framed Her in Son’s Death, Sues Government

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ A woman who was wrongfully convicted of murdering her 3-year-old son is suing the government and alleges a federal officer helped investigators frame her for the crime. 
Kristine Bunch was imprisoned more than 15 years after being convicted of setting a fire at her Greensburg mobile home that killed the toddler. She was released in 2012 after an appellate court reversed her conviction due to discrepancies in evidence. 
Bunch's attorney filed a lawsuit last week claiming a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives laboratory agent who tested samples in the case falsified the report to say the fire was intentional. 
An ATF spokesman on Monday said the agency doesn't comment on pending litigation.
Bunch has filed a separate lawsuit against two Indiana fire marshals who worked on the case.
