HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A Tennessee woman is accused of robbing her fiance’s home and then setting it on fire five times, until the home and its remaining contents were finally destroyed.

News outlets report 48-year-old Tiffany Hummel has been arrested and charged with theft and five counts of arson.

A Hendersonville police statement says fire and police officials determined Hummel repeatedly and purposely set fire to the home over the two days in April.

She’s set to appear in court July 10. It’s unclear if she has a lawyer.

Authorities have not released a possible motive. It’s unclear if Hummel and her fiance still are engaged.
