Man accused of burning down girlfriend's house
Posted on 1/16/2014 11:38:00 AM.
Houma police arrested a 46 year old man for allegedly setting his girlfriend's house on fire. Homua Police Chief Todd Duplantis says first responders were called to scene shortly before 3 o'clock this morning. "The house was completely engulfed in flames.  There were were four occupants at the time of the fire."

The four people inside the home made it to safety.  Duplantis says one of the four occupants is the girlfriend of Douglas Ross. He says investigators quickly learned after talking with the victims that Ross was responsible for setting the home on fire. 

"They did locate him at his residence on Stovall (street).  They conducted a search and evidence was found that linked him to the fire."

Ross was booked into Terrebonne Parish prison.  He faces one count of aggravated arson and four counts of attempted first degree murder.  Duplantis says emotions seem to be the motive behind the blaze.
 "It appears that him and her were having problems, some issues.  I guess some domestic issues and he was upset over that which we believe led him to do this."
