A southern New Jersey man stands accused of setting his home on fire during a domestic dispute.
Hamilton Township police tell The Press of Atlantic City that 29-year-old Janrv Bacolod faces arson and animal cruelty charges. The latter charge was filed because several cats and a dog died in the fire at the Holly Street home, which was reported around 4:30 p.m. Friday.
Bail was set at $100,000 for Bacolod, and it was not known Saturday if he has retained an attorney.
No residents were injured in the fire.
