"This fire displaced more than 20 residents from their home and created hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of damage to these apartments.  I want to thank our detectives who were able to bring this case home and to all of our partners who have worked to solve case, extinguish the fire and find these displaced residents' shelter," said Camden County Police Chief, Gabriel Rodriguez.
Barnes-Nelson is being charged with four different crimes; one count of second-degree aggravated arson, one count of arson recklessly placing another in danger of injury in the third-degree, one count of arson recklessly placing a building in danger of destruction in the third degree, and false report to a law enforcement to implicate another in the second degree.
