Man allegedly sets house fire to go back to prison

— A Warsaw man is behind bars after allegedly setting his parents residence on fire at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday.

According to Kosciusko County police, James Franklin Osborne Jr., 6321 W. C.R. 100 North, Warsaw, admitted to setting the residence on fire and wanting to “return to prison” after officers arrived due to a Atwood volunteer fireman observing a physical altercation at the same location. Osborne told police he had become disgruntled with his family members and proceeded to ignite their residence on fire after they left. Several individuals called 9-1-1 about the house fire and physical fight with Osborne and a neighboring family member. Osborne was arrested in June 2011 on charges of resisting/fleeing law enforcement, possession of a controlled substance, public intoxication and probation violation. He was released in August 2012 after being sentenced to the Indiana Department of Corrections in June 2011.

Osborne was arrested on a charge of arson and being held on a $10,000 bond in the Kosciusko County jail.
