LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville man is in jail charged with arson. Investigators say Anthony Boyington set a house on fire on South 24th Street Tuesday morning.

The woman who rents the home, Tonisha Wilson, was not staying in the house because flood waters damaged the basement and they haven't had power in a week. Now the house is destroyed, as are all of Wilson's belongings.

Major Henry Ott, Louisville Metro arson investigator, said Boyington had a relationship with Wilson and felt she had mistreated him.

Boyington is being held at Louisville Metro Corrections pending arraignment.
