A Huntington man is in custody on preliminary charges of arson and stalking near Barbee Lake in Kosciusko County.
The Sheriff’s Department Trenton Bowers, 37, is behind the fires that happened in the 3000 block of 700 East on Saturday, Oct. 27, and Wednesday, Oct. 31.
Both of those fires at the same residence were determined to be arson, and both caused about $2,500 in damage.
Investigators arrested Bowers Thursday as he was again in the area of the residence with a lighter in his possession.
The Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department says Bowers admitted to setting the two previous fires, and it was determined he was in a previous relationship with the victim.
The Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department was assisted by the North Webster Fire Department and the Warsaw Fire Department in the conclusion of this case.
