ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A South Dougherty County woman is charged with setting her boyfriend's travel trailer on fire with him inside.

Investigators say 46 year old Linda Walker piled pillows under the travel trailer at a mobile home park in the 1400 block of the Liberty Expressway, and then lit them.

57 year old Timothy Ayers was in the trailer but was not hurt.

He extinguished the fire and was himself arrested on outstanding aggravated assault and child cruelty warrants for a drunk driving incident.
