North, S.C. (The Weekly Vice) - Fredlicia Porterfield, a 25-year-old South Carolina woman was jailed Monday after she allegedly set fire to a bed while her boyfriend slept in it.
According to the Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office, deputies were dispatched to the couple's home Sunday when Porterfield punched her boyfriend and then chased him out of the house with a kitchen knife.
Porterfield told arriving deputies that she and her boyfriend got into an argument when she sent him a text message asking when he would be home, and the boyfriend responded in an aggressive, vulgar manner.
She also stated that her boyfriend came home, grabbed her by the neck and began choking her.
When deputies checked the boyfriend's cell phone, they found no text messages that substantiated the woman's story. Porterfield also did not appear injured, so deputies determined that she was the aggressor in the incident and left to seek a warrant for her arrest.
Deputies were called back to the couple's residence on Monday after receiving reports that the couple's house was on fire. Investigators arrived to find the home completely engulfed in flames.
The boyfriend told investigators that he was awakened by Porterfield who demanded that he "get out of her bed."
Porterfield then allegedly poured kerosene around the bed and set it on fire.
Firefighters were unable to subdue the fire, which inevitably reduced the home to smoldering rubble.
Porterfield was booked into jail and charged with third-degree arson and criminal domestic violence.
