A woman was in Georgia’s Cobb County jail Tuesday morning for allegedly burning down a house because a man went to see another woman.
Earnica Lowe, 32, faces a felony arson count after Cobb fire investigators say she lit the Marietta home on fire June 18.
The fire department’s investigation report doesn’t indicate how she started the blaze, but it does give an explanation of why.
Lowe was at 2404 Red Barn Road with the stepson of the homeowner, according to the fire report. She was described in the report as the stepson’s “female companion.”
The man at some point left to go see another “female companion.” Lowe didn’t like that.
She called him and told him to come back home or something was “going to happen,” according to the report.
While on the phone with him, fire investigators heard her say she did it because he went to see another woman. He asked her why she would do something like this.
“You know why I did it,” she told him, according to the report.
