SPRINGER, Oklahoma -- A Carter County man is accused of trying to burn down his wife's home near Springer and set her on fire.
Undersheriff Milton Anthony said James Miller, 38, broke into the mobile home in search of estranged wife, Vicki, and set the bed on fire.
"He had took a can of gasoline and poured it all over his wife and was attempting to set fire to her at which time she ran out of the house, got in her car, and left," Anthony said.
Miller was arrested and now faces felony arson charges.
"She was pretty shook up, which I think normally anybody would be that went through an ordeal like that," Anthony said.
Vicki Miller is seeking a protective order and staying out of sight.
James Miller remained in the Carter County jail Friday afternoon. His bond is set at $75,000.
