OKLAHOMA CITY -

An Oklahoma City woman is behind bars after her friend says she came at her with a knife, tried to set her home on fire, and then told her Jesus sent her to kill.

Police arrested 31-year-old Sarde Holland on Monday near S.W. 15th and Indiana.

According to police reports, Holland showed up to the victim's home with a butcher knife, and said Jesus had sent her to kill. Holland then began dousing the victim's house in lighter fluid, saying, "You need to accept this is God's will for you."

Police say Holland took out a lighter and attempted to light the lighter fluid. That's when the victim ran out of her house and called police at a neighbor's house. Holland then fled the scene in a white car.

Holland was arrested about an hour later for arson.
