A 42-year-old man is behind bars for attempted first-degree murder and first-degree arson after allegedly setting an Aberdeen home on fire during a domestic violence incident on Thanksgiving morning.
Aberdeen Police arrested Chadwick Horne Tuesday after he was medically released from the UNC Burn Center. He was placed at Moore County Detention Center under a $750,000 secured bond.
Police said Horne set the home on fire with a woman inside just after 3 a.m. on Argyll Lane. The female fled from the home to Smokers Express on U.S. 1, where she alerted authorities to the fire.
