After escaping media attention when her husband died in a tragic 2005 blaze, the widow of a Bronx firefighter said she moved into a haunted home in Long Island.

Jeanette Meyran, 53, moved her two daughters to a secluded bungalow in St. James, N.Y., the year after her husband, Lt. Curtis Meyran, leaped to his death instead of burning alive in the ‘Black Sunday’ fire. Though she hoped for a fresh start in the two-story house, Meyran said she and her kids were terrorized by a demon after they made renovations in the ‘Paranormal Witness’ season three premiere on SyFy.

‘In your wildest dreams, did you ever think rebuilding a home would cause such devastation?’ Meyran said in the ‘Paranormal Witness’ episode ‘The Long Island Terror’.

A man told Miller a BB gunshot missed his white sport-utility vehicle in his driveway, and instead busted the window on his garage.

Becker was arrested late Friday afternoon, and charged with multiple counts of criminal mischief and endangering the welfare of a child. She was arraigned in Suffolk County First District Court on Saturday, bail was set at $30,000.
