The man, who described Taija as his “side chick,” told police he invited her to his home for some late night sex, but fell asleep before she arrived.

Dude had eight missed calls in his phone and threatening text messages that read:



You wasted my money to come out here.

U smoked.

I see you wanna die.

I swear to god I hope you die.



Police obtained security footage of Taija Russell at a nearby gas station purchasing lighter fluid, matches and a lighter. Other video shows her returning to the residence and walking to the back of the home.

By 4:08 a.m. the roof…the roof…the roof was on fiyah!

The man ran into the Woodbury police station lobby coughing, out of breath and covered in soot.

He told law enforcement he had escaped from his burning home on South Barber Street. Firefighters extinguished the blaze and rescued the poor dog that was inside of the home.

An investigation determined it was arson.

Y’all burning down houses for the D?!
