A bitter boyfriend from Auburndale, Florida is accused of setting his girlfriend’s family home ablaze and then pointing the finger at a “random black guy” for the fiery mess. Jose Bernando Rosas Madrigal, 19, was arrested Saturday for allegedly dousing his girlfriend’s home and its yard in a flammable liquid.

Then, he lit it up. Inside the home: the girlfriend and her family.
“It’s by the grace of God that we don’t have three people burned up in a house fire,” Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd told WFLA.
The girlfriend’s father also thanked God.
James Scott told The Daily Beast, “I thank God because God was on our side. If it would have gone 5 or 10 minutes more, the car would have blew up. My house would have been on fire. He could have

NBC Boston reports Andrew MacCormack, 29, sobbed in Chelsea District Court Wednesday as he was ordered to be held without bail for the brutal killing of his wife Vanessa.

Kristen Anne Dean Jennings, 28, of San Angelo was taken into custody today after her ex, 41-year-old Vincent Torrez, went missing on July 21. She has been charged with burglary of a habitation with intent to commit another felony, per the Abilene Reporter-News.

Video of a neighbor unplugging a bounce house has gone viral following reports of injuries suffered from children who were playing in the inflatable structure.
According to CBS, two children were rushed to the hospital as the balloon castle deflated, causing kids to be trapped inside. One child was treated for the distress, and the other for injuries incurred during the rescue.
“We were very nervous about the kids because it was extremely hot, and they were trapped inside the bounce house,” mother Deborah Romero said. “We couldn’t really reach for all the kids, and we unfortunately had to pull one of the kids by his leg.”
Surveillance video shows an unknown man unplugging the fans, which maintained the structure’s integrity. Romero noted that a similar, less dangerous situation occurred when a neighbor had unplugged her Christmas lights, leading her to install the security cameras which picked up the footage of this more
