A woman accused of burning her ex-boyfriend's ex-girlfriend's house down in Jasper is in custody. 

Winona Hamilton, 35, of DeRidder, Louisiana, is charged with burglary of a habitation and arson. 

The house fire was on 868 Action Street on New Year's Eve. 

"A neighbor said she saw a small black woman in a gold car standing in front of the residence," Foster said.

Foster spoke with the home owner, Hannah McMickell, and she said the woman is the former girlfriend of her ex-boyfriend. The woman allegedly broke into the house, took a picture, and then set it on fire.

Foster said the suspect and McMickell exchanged angry messages on social media days prior to the arson.

According to Foster, the suspect sent a text message to McMickell saying, "I burnt your b---- house down."

According to Jasper Police Department, Hamilton has a collective bond of $100,000.
