FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) — A man suspected of setting a Fayetteville church on fire appeared in court.
Authorities said 33-year-old Jack Singleton is responsible for an early morning church fire that happened Sept. 23.
Singleton appeared in court Monday in relation to the fire.
The incident took place at CD McNeill Memorial Church Of God along Sapona Road near Cedar Creek Road.
The church kitchen was charred and there was extensive smoke damage throughout the building.
A brick also seemed to be thrown through a window.
Authorities said Singleton actually called police to report the fire and his story just didn’t add up.
“He was very cooperative when he was in custody and the statement was that he was just upset, angry, at himself, at life,” said Fayetteville police Lt. Robert Ramirez.
Singleton also faces charges in another church arson in Robeson County.
Singleton is currently out of jail on a $16,000 bond.
