Owen Sound Sun Times, Owen Sound, Ontario, September 12, 2009

City police have arrested and charged a 34-year-old woman with setting fire to her common-law husband's leased car last week. A 2008 Honda was set on fire in the early morning hours of Sept. 6.

Police said lighter fluid was sprayed all over the front and back seats of the car and toilet paper was used as a wick to set the fire. Her common-law husband noticed the blaze and called the fire department. The woman has been charged with public mischief and arson.
