Texas Babysitter Accused of Setting Fire to Family’s Home

A Texas woman was allegedly so annoyed with two girls she babysat, police say she decided to set their bedrooms on fire, reports ABC News.

Martha Dreher is charged with arson, accused of setting a fire in the two girls’ rooms while their father, Glenn Williams, was out of town with his daughters.

Dreher, 57, had worked for the family for a few months. She denied setting the fire at the family’s home in Austin, Texas, but told investigators she was tired of dealing with the girls and wanted to quit, according to Williams.

“She said that it was horrible, that the girls — my oldest — had been very disrespectful,” said Williams.

Surveillance video captured Dreher driving up to the empty house earlier this month, then leaving 20 minutes later as flames were visible from the girls’ bedroom, police say. Hours later, the girls’ brother came home.
