A Pittsburg County man is accused of holding his ex-girlfriend captive inside a dog cage.

Officials say Cody McFadden allegedly beat the woman and threatened to shoot her with a crossbow.

"Apparently, he hit the cage with an ax. The statement says he hit it so hard, I think it bent the metal and broke the latch or something and she was able to get out, and she dove through a glass window to escape." Sheriff Chris Morris, Pittsburg County:

"McFadden then lit his mobile home on fire during a standoff with police," said Pittsburg County Sheriff Chris Morris. "Kidnapping and arson, just some of the charges he's facing."
