MEMPHIS (AP) - A 25-year-old man has been accused of starting a fire at his ex-girlfriend's Memphis home by dousing a teddy bear with lighter fluid and threatening the woman's family.

The Commercial Appeal ( ) reports that Marshay Frenard was arrested on Friday and charged with aggravated arson and domestic violence.

On June 23, Memphis police say the woman and Frenard had just broken up when Frenard grabbed a teddy bear, covered it with accelerant and burned it in the fireplace.

The victim says she woke her sons and got them out of the home. As Frenard left her house, she says he threatened to burn down her home and set her clothes on fire.

Frenard is in custody in lieu of a $300,000 bond. It is unclear if he has hired an attorney.
