MERIDEN, CT (WFSB) -

The mother of an 8-year-old boy who was killed in a Meriden house fire earlier this week is progressing in her recovery, according to police.

Karin Ziolkowski, 40, has been transferred out of the intensive care unit.

After Monday's fire, police reported that she had been in critical condition.

Friday, police said they were told she is recovering and progressing.

However, they would not comment further on her condition or the investigation.

"I do not have any idea as to how long she will remain in the hospital and at this time there is nothing new to report as far as the investigation is concerned," said Sgt. Darrin McKay, Meriden police.

Officers determined that Monday's fire on Davis Street that killed Elijah Ziolkowski was intentionally set.

They said the determination was made based off of what they found at the scene. However, the details of what they found were not released.

Court documents revealed that Karin Ziolkowski and her husband went through a divorce earlier this year. However, the case was dismissed last month.

Elijah was a student at Israel Putnam Elementary School in Meriden.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact the Meriden Police Department at 203-630-6233.
