Court documents show the woman charged with starting the fire at Arbor View Apartments has a history of domestic violence and previously set fire to her boyfriend's clothes. An affidavit filed in the case against Krystal Danielle Gonzalez, 25, says investigators learned the woman contacted her boyfriend just before the March 4 fire to tell him she was destroying his belongings.

The affidavit was written by Lt. Terry Hines of the d'Iberville Police Department. The affidavit pinpoints where the fire started, apartment 414, which Gonzalez shared with her boyfriend. In the report, Hines wrote, "Gonzalez stated to investigators she was in the apartment at the time the fire started." It goes on to say investigators learned Gonzalez has a prior history of domestic violence against her boyfriend in which she has set fire to his clothes.

Gonzalez was arrested Wednesday afternoon. She is charged with one count of first degree arson in the fire which destroyed 20 apartments. The fire, one of the largest ever in d'Iberville, left dozens of people homeless. All of the residents were able to escape the inferno safely.

Gonzalez is being held on $2,000,000 bond. She is scheduled to make her initial appearance before a judge Friday morning at the Harrison County Jail courtroom.
