(The AEGIS Alliance) – A man in Texas violated some of the ten commandments this past week after the man lit his family member’s house ablaze. The fire killed his brother as well as wounding his mom. The man’s motive was that his family members did not follow the Bible.
40-year-old Phillip Daniel Mills got apprehended by police on Friday following him deliberately igniting the blaze at about 11:30 p.m. on Thursday night at the El Paso residence, KFOX 14 reported.
His brother, age 54 Paul Aaron Mills, was removed from the fire yet eventually passed away. 82-year-old Florence Annette Mills, his mom, left the home but was taken to a hospital because she was suffering from burns as well as lung damage from the smoke she inhaled.
Mills got arrested after running away from the scene and also saying to the police his home caught on fire. Later, in the course of questioning with investigators, Mills confessed to lighting the house on fire.
Mills purportedly said to investigators that he lit a sofa on fire and was looking to purge the house of biblical “evil,” ABC 7 reported.
“Once the sofa caught on fire, he walked outside the house and waited to see if his mother or brother would go outside but they didn’t,” KTSM described the affidavit. “The defendant advised that he waited outside the residence with large rocks in his hands in the event that both his brother and mother had made it out the burning residence.”
Mills, later on, said to the cops he had been distressed over his mom and brother not following the bible.
Phillip Daniel Mills is facing charges of capital murder and arson.
