Investigators say he set fire to his ex-girlfriend's home.
The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office has charged a Garrett County man with setting his ex-girlfriend's house on fire. Jason Michael Weaver, 32, was taken into custody without incident for the fire Sunday in Oakland.
Weaver is charged with 1st-degree arson, 1st-degree malicious burning, threat of arson, 1st-degree burglary, 3rd-degree burglary, 4th-degree burglary and violating an ex-parte order.
His bond was set at $100,000 and he's been transported to the Garrett County Detention Center.
Investigators say the blaze at 240 Sanders Lane caused $60,000 in damage to the house and its contents. They say the fire was intentionally set in the kitchen area of the single-family home.
If he's convicted of all the charges, the Fire Marshal's Office says Weaver could be sentenced to 83 years in prison, and/or $65,000 in fines.
The investigation was conducted by the State Fire Marshal's Office and the Garrett County Sheriff's Office.
