CHARLESTOWN, Ind. — An Indiana man is charged with attempted murder after setting his home on fire while his family was inside.
Jamal Long, 22, faces four counts of attempted murder and one count of arson, reports WHAS.
Long set his family’s home on fire following an argument with his father, court papers say. His mother, father, and two siblings were inside the home at the time and were able to escape.
According to court papers, Long poured gasoline along the side of the house and on the ground, then lit a paper towel and threw it on the gas. After the fire started, Long ran away.
The home was heavily damaged by the fire and collapsed while firefighters tried to put it out, according to WHAS.
A jury trial is scheduled for November 10.
