LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) – Authorities have arrested a Lincoln woman on suspicion of setting a car on fire.
The Lincoln Journal Star reports (http://bit.ly/2clOqwx) that 29-year-old Gabrielle Loving is accused of setting fire to a car that she believed belonged to a former boyfriend.
Authorities say the blaze caused about $7,000 in damages.
Loving told police she had nothing to do with fire, but police say her daughter told a school counselor that her mother admitted to the crime and that her clothes smelled like smoke.
According to a police affidavit, Loving’s daughter said her mother told her to put the clothes in a neighbor’s trash can and instructed her about what to say if police asked her about the incident.
Online court records did not list an attorney for Loving in the case.
