A Southwest Louisiana woman is now in jail in Jasper, Texas after police say she burned down the rent house of her ex-boyfriend's new lover on New Year's Eve.

KFDM.com and KJAS.com both report that Winona Pertrice Hamilton of DeRidder, La., surrendered Friday (Jan. 15) to charges of burglary and arson. Her bond stands at $100,000, and as of Monday, she remained in jail.

Jasper Police say Hamilton crossed state lines to burn a home leased to Hannah McMickell. McMickell was dating Hamilton's ex-boyfriend, and the two women had been arguing on social media in the days leading up to the fire.

(Jasper Police Det. Garrett) Foster said it was determined that Hamilton went to the house on December 31st when no one was home, broke in, stole a framed photo of McMickell’s child off of the wall, and then set the house on fire.

According to Foster, Hamilton then drove to a location where her ex-boyfriend was at, threw the photo onto the street, yelled out “I just burned your *expletive* house down”, and drove away. -- KJAS.com
