Later that afternoon, officials said Crandall returned to the home and attempted to he set the front porch on fire, while a man and his dog were inside.

According to reports, after the incident investigators found scorch marks on the door and melted weather stripping along the bottom of the door.

Police said when asked why she attempted to set the home on fire, Crandall said, “because he deserved it for what he did to me, what does it matter anyway if he wants to kill himself. Why does it matter if he does it or I do it?”

When police told the woman other people lived in the apartment complex as well, she reportedly replied, “well that’s not my problem.”

During a search, officers discovered a small plastic draw used for smoking crack in Crandall’s possession.

Crandall was arrested and charged with aggravated arson and possession of drug paraphernalia.
