Playing with Fire

Mon, 05/30/2016 - 22:41 -- LawBlogWriter

The police and fire departments will be visiting a suburban neighborhood twice in one day. Two 9-year old boys are playing "cops and robbers" inside their next door neighbor's storage shed and accidentally set it on fire. A couple of blocks down the street, a 36-year man is suspicious of the close relationship of his wife and a male neighbor. Later that night, he watches his wife leave their home and enter the neighbor's house. He follows his wife and sets the neighbor's house on fire with both of them inside while laughing to himself in revenge.
