Man accused of setting fire to home 'after fight with family'

  Man accused of setting fire to home 'after fight with family' Police have accused a man of making threats to kill after a house fire in Melbourne’s south-east last night.The 29-year-old appeared lethargic and dazed having been discharged from hospital after his dramatic arrest last night at Heatherbrae Avenue in Caulfield.

"Did you kill Marilyn Wallman?" 

That is the question 9NEWS has asked 72-year-old cane farmer Noel Morris, who confirms he is a person of interest in the 1972 disappearance of the Mackay school girl.

Fourteen-year-old Marilyn without a trace vanished on March 21, 1972 while riding her school bike just 800 metres from her family home to the bus stop.

Only a partial skull was ever found and no one has ever been charged.

But just this week police made an extraordinary decision to double the $250,000 reward offered for anyone with information that could help them catch her killer.

  Cops 'did duty' in WA siege shooting death Two investigations into the shooting death of a WA hostage-taker ruled officers acted reasonably, believing he posed an imminent threat, an inquest has heard.Police fired 13 shots in nine seconds, with up to 11 bullets hitting 38-year-old Brendan John Lindsay outside a Carlisle deli in November 2014 after he held Sheila Tran captive.

This is the first time in Queensland history that a reward has been increased to help solve a murder.

It's also the largest government reward ever offered for a case of this kind.

Marilyn's family has been tormented by the lack of answers, particularly her brothers who were riding about 10 minutes behind their sister on that fateful day.

As they followed the route she'd taken towards their school, they found her bike and school bag abandoned in the street.

In 2016, brother Rex Wallman said his family had not given up hope that the killer would be caught.

Officers also revealed they had a person of interest - and 9NEWS has tracked him down to a rural caravan park on the outskirts of Mackay.

We asked him point blank whether he had anything to do with her disappearance.
