Man Burns Down Woman’s House After She Rejected Him On Facebook
Some people don’t take rejection well. A Kentucky man set a woman’s house on fire after she rejected him on Facebook, according to authorities.
37-year-old James Graham is facing charges of arson and burglary charges.

“This is one of those tragic situations where somebody is now without a home and for such a minor reason. it’s disturbing,” Warfel said.
“It got to the point that she was very aggravated,” Samantha Beagle, the victim’s sister said.
Beagle explained that Graham was an acquaintance but Joanie Yount was not interested in a relationship, according to WTVR.
“She doesn’t want a relationship, she just wants people to leave her alone. When it comes to stuff like that, either be decent or don’t bother her at all,” she said.
According to police, Graham found an unlocked door, let himself inside and started a fire in Yount’s bedroom.
Yount and her 3-year-old son were not home at the time.
The home sustained a good deal of damage including smoke and water damage, which destroyed the floors and ceilings in some of the rooms.
Yount and her son were forced to find another place to stay.
Yount, a single mother, had to take in a second job to help replace her son’s Christmas presents after they were destroyed in the fire.
