MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A Memphis man has been charged with arson and attempted murder after prosecutors say he firebombed the home of a man he believed was having a relationship with his wife.

The Shelby County district attorney’s office said Thursday that 31-year-old Randall Freeman is jailed on $500,000 bond after he was indicted on 18 criminal charges.

Investigators say Freeman threw two Molotov cocktails at the home of a man he believed was seeing his wife in August. Those attempts caused little damage.

Authorities say Freeman threw another firebomb at the man’s home in September that caused heavy damage. Five people inside the home escaped without injuries.

Media reports say Freeman’s wife, Keila Freeman, was reported missing Sept. 5. She has not been found.

A call to Freeman’s lawyer was not returned.
