Ex-Wife Suspected in Vehicle Arson

(Michigan City, IN) - A woman is accused of setting fire to a vehicle belonging to her ex-husband in Michigan City. 25-year-old Anisa Higginbotham is charged with arson and mischief.


In May, police say a man woke up to his vehicle burning outside a home in the 400 block of Lincoln Avenue on the city’s west side. The fire also spread to his father’s vehicle. According to court documents, the victim suspected his ex-wife.


A few months later, police said they could place Higginbotham in the immediate area where the fire occurred when it was set by tracing the activity on her cell phone.


Higginbotham of Trail Creek could face anywhere from a 2 to 12-year sentence.
