Women Sets House on fire….Todays Ratchet News

In MAGAZINE on May 2, 2013 at 12:47 pm

A Chicago woman accused of setting fire to a Riverside apartment after an argument with her husband over marijuana has been charged with arson, police said.

An investigation revealed that the former tenant of the unit had moved out two weeks prior and a married couple had moved in because the rent was paid to the end of April. The couple had been using the apartment to party and use heroin, according to the release.



Police learned that the couple went to the North Riverside Mall on Sunday and had stolen liquor. They returned to the apartment where they drank all day and later drove to Chicago to buy crack. They then returned to the apartment where they continued to drink and smoke, the release said.

The woman, later identified as Linda Lopez, 33, fell asleep and when she woke up, her marijuana was missing, the release said.

She confronted her husband and accused him of smoking her marijuana. The argument escalated to a fistfight and she threatened to stab her husband. Instead, she punctured a pink plastic bottle of perfume and poured it on a set of towels before igniting it with a lighter. Lopez told police she started the fire because she was angry her husband smoked the marijuana without her.
“The tenants inside the building are lucky to be alive,” said Riverside Police Chief Thomas Weitzel in the release. “The two elderly tenants that live in the basement, both in their late 80s and early 90s, one is blind and one deaf. There’s no possible way these individuals could have made it out of that apartment on their own if the building had become fully engulfed.”


There was fire damage to the second-floor apartment door, wall and floor, including the hallway, the release said.

Lopez was charged with aggravated arson and she appeared in court where she was ordered held on $20,000 bail, the release said.

In typical VIP fashion, guests on the invite list of Michael Jordan’s upcoming wedding to model Yvette Prieto have reportedly been asked to keep all details concerning the ceremony a secret.

Jordan, 50, and his bride-to-be Prieto, 34, have been engaged since December, 2011 but have held off their nuptials until now.

According to the Chicago SunTimes, those on the invite list were given specific orders not to bring any cameras or cell phones, to avoid the temptation of snapping photos. They were also asked not to speak to the press or family members who may spill any details.

The precautions come several weeks after Jordan made headlines again for accusations that he had fathered a son with a Georgia-based sex instructor.

The black tie affair is scheduled to take place in Palm Beach, Florida, on April 27.
