NEW ORLEANS (AP) - New Orleans police say a man accused of setting someone on fire and attempting to leave the scene has been arrested.

Police said in a statement Friday that 52-year-old David Klein was charged with second-degree murder.

Police say an officer was alerted to a fire behind a shuttered grocery store and also to a possible suspect, identified as Klein, walking away from the scene.

The victim has not been identified. It is unclear if Klein has a lawyer.
