Senaida Marie Soto set fire to her friend’s house: MPs
A Texas woman allegedly beat up her boyfriend and set his house on fire just because another woman – his relative – answered the phone. Senaida Marie Soto23, was arrested on Monday, said the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office. The charges include burglary and arson.
Authorities said they received a fire call early in the morning.
“On November 20, 2022, at approximately 1:45 a.m., the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office, the Lytle Fire Department and the Bexar County Firefighter’s Office responded to an arson attack at Block 16000 of Shepherd Rd,” the deputies said.
The homeowner said Soto broke into his home, stole several items and set fire to the apartment.
“Senaida Soto was reportedly in a romantic relationship with a family member of the homeowner,” lawmakers said. “Soto had FaceTimed her boyfriend when another woman, later revealed to be the boyfriend’s relatives, answered his phone. Soto was upset that another woman answered her boyfriend’s phone, went to the boyfriend’s house and then set the living room couch on fire.”
As described by MPs, the video showed Soto setting the couch on fire. Flames spread to the house itself. This caused $50,000 in damage, authorities said.
“I hope your house is doing well,” she reportedly wrote to her boyfriend.
“The Fire Marshall’s Office assisted BCSO in the arson attack and BCSO issued two arrest warrants for Senaida Soto,” lawmakers said.
A witness spotted Soto stuffing things from her boyfriend’s house into her gray Kia Optima, according to indictment documents obtained by KSAT. Soto allegedly drove away. Authorities said she FaceTimed her boyfriend and a burning chair inside the house.
“I hope your things will be okay,” she reportedly said before hanging up the call.
A hearing is scheduled for December 6th.
Soto has no lawyer.
