ANOKA, Minn. (AP) - A 43-year-old Fridley woman is charged with arson in a weekend fire that destroyed her mobile home.

Jennifer Beck appeared in Anoka County court Tuesday on first-degree arson charges.

According to the complaint, Beck told officers she set the curtains of the mobile home on fire because she was upset with her boyfriend.

Early Sunday, Beck called police to an alleged assault. But when officers arrived, she told them she did not want charges pressed against the suspect, who had left.

Beck’s boyfriend, who was not the suspect, later told officers she became upset with him for not defending her quickly enough when the suspect assaulted her.

The Star Tribune (Ihttps://strib.mn/1Bi5giw) reports shortly afterward, Beck woke her boyfriend and told him the home was on fire.
