Police Arrest Man Accused of Starting Deadly Fire in Camden, New Jersey

Camden NJ Homicide SuspectTexas law enforcement has arrested a man accused of committing arson in Camden New Jersey more than 12 years ago. The Camden County fire resulted in three deaths, so the suspect is subject to criminal homicide charges.

The fatal incident occurred on July 9, 2004. According to the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office, the suspect deliberately started a fire at a brick row house located on North 22nd Street in Camden, New Jersey.

Several people attempted to use fire extinguishers to fight the fire, but they were unable to do so.

The three people killed in the fire included a 28-year-old woman, her 33-year-old husband, and her six-year-old son. The adult male victim reportedly sustained burns to more than half of his body while trying to combat the blaze.

Six other people sustained injuries as a result of the fire.

The suspect is a 47-year-old man who has been living in Killeen, Texas for quite some time. It is expected that he will be extradited back to Camden County in order to face the murder charges.

If the suspect is ultimately convicted of first degree murder, he could end up spending the rest of his life behind bars.
