AP 8-31,2015

A Cheyenne woman is in custody on suspicion of setting a hotel bed sheet on fire.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports 40-year-old Stacy Garcia has been charged in the July 25 incident at the 57-room Pioneer Hotel. Charging documents say Garcia set the fire maliciously and intended to damage the hotel.

Garcia told police she woke up and saw the blaze. Assistant hotel manager Greg Brush said the two had been dating for about a week and that she set the fire because she was angry he removed all the beer in the room.

Garcia has been in custody since earlier this month when a judge set her bond at $5,000.
