Woman Charged For Setting Ex’s Home Ablaze

A Wayne County woman is accused of setting her ex’s home on fire. On November 18th, the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office responded to a 911 call reporting a domestic situation in Dudley.  The reporting party stated an ex-girlfriend was seen banging on the doors and windows of the residence.  The suspect, 32-year-old Yolander L. Latham of Dudley, left the scene as deputies arrived.  Deputies then noticed a strong odor of gasoline and found the side of the residence was on fire.  The residents were notified and the blaze was extinguished.  The investigation led to the arrest of Latham on one count of First Degree Arson and one count of Attempted First Degree Murder, both felonies.  Latham was placed in the Wayne County Detention Center with bond set at $100,000 secured.

    Once a Felon always a Felon…… card theft and larceny to First Degree Arson and Attempted First Degree Murder….she has already done prison time so this will nothing new for her. But on the bright side for her she will get three hots and a cot. Maybe they will keep her longer than than the four months she did the last time
