Man Sets Home Ablaze Burning Wife's Pants
PINE BLUFF, Ark. - A man who set his wife's pants on fire because he believed she was having an affair accidentally torched his mobile home and has been charged with arson, police said.
Officers said Leroy Brown, 19, perceiving that his wife had been with another man, set fire to the pair of pants he thought she was wearing at the time of the affair.
The burning pants started to singe Brown's fingers so he dropped the pants and the mobile home caught fire, Pine Bluff police detectives James Golden and Kelvin Hadley said.
Brown was detained on an arson charge after Tuesday's fire, pending a formal review by the Jefferson County prosecutor's office.
