The Times-Picayune reported today that 71-year-old New Orleans resident, Joe Ann Everett, was arrested by NOPD on charges of aggravated arson and second degree murder.

Everett is believed to be responsible for setting the gauze bandages of a fellow resident of the St Charles Health Center nursing home where she lived ablaze; ultimately causing his death.

The fire is understood to have been the result of an argument between Everett and a 41-year-old man from Houma named Valery Wyble.

No information is available at this point as to the nature of the argument between Everett and Wyble.
