Charges against a Princeton man who had been accused of arson have been dropped.

35-year-old Mark Roussel was released from jail Tuesday night.

He was accused of setting fire to a Hampden home last Monday night.

He was also accused of sexual assault. No charge was filed in connection with that accusation.

Investigators continue to work to identify who set the fire that destroyed a house on Main Road South.

According to court documents, surveillance from a neighboring house shows a man tossing a flaming object toward the house.
