LEWISBURG, W.Va. (AP) -- Charges have been dropped against a woman accused of participating in the torching of several vehicles at a West Virginia State Police barracks.

A Greenbrier County grand jury indicted 33-year-old Jennifer Lynn White of Meadow Bridge in September 2012 on conspiracy charges stemming from the 2011 fires at the State Police's detachment in Rainelle.

The Register-Herald reports that Greenbrier County Circuit Court Judge Joseph C. Pomponio Jr. granted the prosecution's request to drop the charges on Tuesday.

White's husband, 48-year-old David Clayton White, was convicted on arson, retaliation and conspiracy charges in February.

The Whites are among five people who were charged following the fires.

The fires destroyed two State Police vehicles and several others that had been seized.
