LOS ANGELES (CBS) — The mother of serial arson suspect Harry Burkhart is scheduled to make her own court appearance Friday.

Federal prosecutors are seeking to deport Dorothee Burkhart, who faces fraud charges in Germany.

Friday’s hearing is expected to determine whether she will be released on bond.

Her son, Harry Burkhart, is charged with 37 counts of arson in connection with more than 50 fires that were set across Los Angeles and Hollywood.

Authorities in Canada are investigating whether 24-year-old Burkhart, who is being held on $3 million bail, is responsible for a series of arson fires there.
