Texas’s Senaida Soto burned boyfriend’s house because female relative answered his phone?

When Senaida Marie Soto, 23, of Texas, United States called her boyfriend on FaceTime, another woman answered his phone. The woman was a relative of the boyfriend but Soto did not know that because she did not ask.

For Soto, the best way to deal with the situation is to drive her gray Kia Optima and go to her boyfriend’s house in San Antonio, Texas. She broke into his house and lit the couch in the living room on fire.


According to a witness, Soto took items from the boyfriend’s home and put them in her Kia Optima. She drove away before the house was completely engulfed in flames, the witness added.

“I hope your house is okay,” Soto allegedly texted her boyfriend while his house was on fire. The fire caused more than $50,000 worth of damages.


At around 1:45 a.m. on November 20, 2022, the Lytle Fire Department and the Bexar County Fire Marshal’s Office responded to an arson call in the house of Soto’s boyfriend. The fire marshal’s office helped the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office with the arson investigation.

The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office issued two warrants for the arrest of Soto. She was been arrested on November 21, 2022.

Soto was charged with arson of a habitation/place of assembly and burglary of a habitation. Her bond was set at $165,000.
