A Michigan woman has been accused of setting a fire that killed her boyfriend’s mother and two nephews.
According to Lansing State Journal, Abbieana Williams sent her boyfriend a text that said, “I’m outside your mom’s house… I hope your mom likes being burned alive.”
The 21-year-old denied setting the fire that killed Melissa Western, an 8-year-old, and a 4-year-old.
A friend of Williams told police that she was angry at the boyfriend because she thought he was cheating on her. The friend continued by saying that he dropped Williams off on the same street where the boyfriend’s mother lives between 11:20 p.m. snd 11:30 p.m. the night of the fire.
Lansing State Journal states that Williams asked a neighbor for a lighter before walking to the mother’s house.
Arson was ruled out as a cause for the fire but with new tips and information led to Williams’ charges.
Williams faces three charges of homicide and three of first-degree arson.
