An Oklahoma grandmother is in jail, charged with trying to set her mobile home on fire with her 8-month-old granddaughter inside.  Jonna Murrell is accused of lighting a five-gallon can of gas under her Payne County home Saturday.  Police reports say she told relatives she was going to burn her home down.

Murrell's daughter heard the explosion, ran inside and grabbed the baby.           

The home did not catch fire and the baby was not injured.
