WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita police have taken a woman into custody whose son says she set their house on fire after they argued.
The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1tg57bu ) the 54-year-old woman faces two counts of aggravated arson and one count of domestic violence.
Lt. James Espinoza says the 31-year-old man went to bed on Sunday after the argument in the home he shares with his mother and 14-year-old brother. He tells officers he woke up to find a carpet and couch on fire and the house filling with smoke. He says his mother attacked him while he called 911.
Espinoza says police believe the woman used a cigarette lighter to start the fire.
