This gives a whole new meaning to young hearts on fire. Or, as the case may be, a lover’s quarrel resulting in a house on fire. That’s what happened when a Texas woman named Senaida Marie Soto, 23, thought her boyfriend had cheated on her — so she allegedly set his house on fire.
Then she FaceTimed him the results, with his home engulfed by flames.
“I hope your stuff is going to be OK,” Soto reportedly said before ending the call.
Sounds reasonable, no?
Texas Woman Sets Fire to Boyfriend’s Home
Actually, the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office didn’t think so. They arrested Soto and charged her with charged with burglary habitation and arson.
As an aside, it started when Soto FaceTimed her boyfriend, and a woman answered, police said. That’s when Soto’s burning rage set in. But as it turned out, the woman who answered the call was merely a relative — not her boyfriend’s love interest.
So she did all this for no reason/ Honestly, though, is there ever really a good reason?
According to police, Soto first set her boyfriend’s couch on fire. That just started things. It eventually spread, as flames tend to do, and took over everything.
The fire caused $50,000 worth of damage — so this turned out to be no small feat. Neither is Soto’s bond, which has reportedly been set at $165,000.
As for the boyfriend, no word on whether he broke up.
