Wife is a Snorer, So Husband Burns Her Pants Article

A man in Salt Lake City was arrested for setting fire to his wife’s pants because he was disturbed by her snoring.

Bryce Ray Whitaker, 60, told police that he lit a candle on a gas stove and used it to set fire to a pair of his wife’s pants and a cardboard box while she was sleeping.  He said he became upset after he and the woman have been arguing about “her snoring and her stuff.”

Whitaker woke the woman up when the fire broke out and they both escaped unharmed.

Whitaker was charged with aggravated arson.
