VISTA (CNS) - A man who allegedly set fire to his own home in Fallbrook following an argument with his wife pleaded not guilty Wednesday to a felony arson charge.
Jade Antoine Taylor, 27, was ordered held on $150,000 bail.
He was arrested late Sunday night near the scene of the fire he allegedly set about 10:40 p.m. in the 2900 block of Via Del Robles, according to San Diego County sheriff's Sgt. E.J. Dayrit.
The two-story home was fully engulfed when deputies and firefighters arrived, but the blaze was stopped before it could spread to any other structures. No one was hurt.
Taylor's wife told deputies that she and the defendant had argued earlier in the evening and that she had left the home, Dayrit said.
She said she later received a call from her husband, who allegedly told her that he had set the house on fire, according to sheriff's officials.
Taylor faces up to eight years in prison if convicted.
