The damages from the incidents totaled around $289,500, the fire department said. Upon further investigation, the suspect was reportedly identified as Delina Collier. She was booked into Shelby County Jail on Monday, Sept. 26, and charged with arson, records show.
According to WREG-TV, Collier told witnesses she committed arson because "there were evil spirits in the houses she set on fire."
Collier’s bond was set at $5,000, and she is scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 28.
