Man Burns His House Down Because Wife Prepared Dinner Late

Posted by on May 25th, 2010 No Comments »

You don’t like Guy Edward Jones when he’s hungry.

Jones, 60, of West Virginia, allegedly set fire to his home after arguing with his wife Beverly over why his dinner wasn’t prepared.

After returning from a night of drinking, Jones became enraged to find his dinner not yet on the table.

When the fight escalated, Mrs. Jones left to a neighbor’s house in an attempt to avoid her husband’s rage. Soon thereafter, she noticed flames coming from the basement of her home and saw Mr. Jones exiting through the basement door.

Guy Jones was arrested, and is being held on charges of first-degree arson.
