(BOWLING GREEN)– A man who admitted to setting a fire because his wife would not watch fireworks with him gets a six year prison sentence.

42-year-old Russell Ray Darnell of Bowling Green pleaded guilty to felony second degree arson. He admitted starting a fire in a home at Seventh and North Carolina streets in Louisiana on July Fourth of last year.

Crews were called to the scene just after the end of the annual fireworks show along the riverfront. There were no injuries.

Darnell told an officer that he set a blanket on fire in the living room of the residence, where his wife and children were living. Darnell told police he did so because his wife would not go watch fireworks with him or answer his telephone calls.
