St. Joseph Co. man scheduled for court in arson case


This man charged with setting his old house on fire in St. Joseph County is scheduled to appear in court this morning.

Douglas Wilcox, 62, is facing arson charges for the August 11 fire at his former home in Clay Township.

Wilcox lost the home in a foreclosure, and the new owners were scheduled to move in just days later. Police arrested him nearly three weeks later at Firekeepers Casino in Battle Creek.
