A man who became angry that his wife didn’t want to have intercourse with him, decided to set their home on fire, police in Nebraska said.
Douglas County police said that they have arrested 36-year-old Gilberto Garcia, after being charged with arson for setting his house on fire.
Firefighters responded to the house fire around 11:30 p.m. on Monday. After extinguishing the fire, investigators determined that a closet had been intentionally set alight.
A woman outside the home, told police officers that her husband started the fire. The woman said that she and Garcia, had been drinking and arguing most of the evening.
She went to bed, but awoke to find Garcia making sexual advances. After rejecting the sexual advances of her husband, the woman went back to sleep.
Later, she awakened by the smell of smoke. The woman and her three children managed to escape from the house, and they called the police.
