Because she was 16 at the time of the crime, Pittman will not be eligible for the death penalty if convicted. But she could face life in prison.
On Thursday morning, the Bowie County Sheriff's Office released Pittman's booking photo, and confirmed that her bond has been set at $3 million.
Pittman was arrested in August, nearly three months to the day after the bodies of 34-year-old Amanda Doss, 8-year-old Texas Johnson and 11-year-old Guinivere Doss were pulled from the smoldering rubble of their rural Bowie County home on May 11th.
Until now, Pittman faced the charges as a juvenile, and her name could not be released.
KSLA News 12 has confirmed that the Redwater teen has been moved from the juvenile jail to the Bi-State Justice center.
Although Pittman is in custody, Bowie County Sheriff Chief Deputy Larry Parker says the investigation is still ongoing. Parker says that if any other information surfaces, they will pursue it.
Investigators are not commenting, however, on whether any further arrests are expected.
