You know the story. It’s a common tale. Girl meets bo, both fall in love, girl thinks boy is cheating, girl sets boy’s mother on fire and burns her to death. Love , am I right?
LANSING, Mich. (WJW) — A woman accused of setting a fire that killed her boyfriend’s mother and two nephews reportedly texted the boyfriend right before the blaze.
The Lansing State Journal reported that according to an affidavit, the text read: “I’m outside your mom’s house…I hope your mom likes being burned alive.”
Abbieanna Williams, 21, denied setting the Sept. 3 fire that killed Melissa Westen, an 8-year-old and a 4-year-old, the Lansing State Journal reported.
A friend told police Williams was angry at the boyfriend at the time because she thought he was cheating on her. The friend told police he dropped her off on the street where the boyfriend’s mother lives between 11:20 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. the night of the fire.
A neighbor told police Williams asked to borrow their lighter before walking toward the mother’s home shortly afterward.
We need common sense lighter control. It is an outrage this woman was able to borrow a lighter with no background check.
