ROXAS CITY, Capiz— A husband is facing arson charges after he intentionally torched their house Thursday evening in Sapian, Capiz.

Woody Candelario voluntarily surrendered to the police and admitted he set their house on fire out of anger at his wife.

SFO1 Roldan Gaylan, arson investigator of Ivisan Municipal Fire Station, said the incident happened at Sitio Malamig, Barangay Poblacion.

Gaylan said the suspect and his wife Marilou always quarreled with each other.

The couple was even summoned by barangay officials to patch up their misunderstanding but to no avail.

The wife told the police that her husband broke some of their personal belongings before torching the house.

It was learned that the house was owned by a certain Ocbeña who allowed the Candelarios to reside in the dwelling.

Candelario was drunk when he surrendered to the police.

Arson investigator said damage to property was estimated at P80,000.

The suspect is presently detained at the Sapian Municipal Police Station.
