Crime Stories with Nancy Grace: Jealous Woman Sets Boyfriend’s Home on Fire, texts ‘I Hope Your House is Okay’

A single father and his 2-year-old daughter are left with nothing after Dad’s new girlfriend burns their Texas home down.

Tommy Garay has been in a relationship with Senaida Soto for about a month when Soto calls Garay, and a woman picks up the phone. The woman is Garay’s cousin, but Soto believes Garay is cheating.

Soto goes to Garay’s home in the middle of the night, breaks in and steals several items, then sets the house on fire. Soto then FaceTimes Garay to show him burning furniture in the home and says, “I hope your stuff is going to be okay,” before hanging up.

The home is devastated by the fire, but thankfully no one is injured. Soto is charged with burglary and arson and is now held on a $165,000 bond.
