GARNER — A 27-year-old man is accused of second-degree arson in connection with a fire that burned his and his wifes home on Vernie Drive earlier this month.
Wake County sheriffs deputies arrested Bradley Scott Muiter on Wednesday and charged him with setting the fire on the evening of March 18.
Muiter owns the home with his wife, Rosalynn, county records show.
Under state law, the charge of second-degree arson indicates the house was unoccupied at the time.
Firefighters from Garner and Fuquay-Varina fought the blaze.
Muiter, a systems analyst for the state, was freed on $250,000 bail after his arrest.
