Man charged with murder for setting Houston lawyer on fire

This story falls into the category of why I am a firm believer in the Second Amendment:
"Authorities have arrested a Houston man charged with murder, accused of setting fire to a 67-year-old lawyer and his 45-year-old son, after a spat on Monday.
Curtis Lee Holliman, 32, had been living with attorney Kirby Taylor and his son Dexter since 2008, according to court records.
On Monday, Holliman apparently took offense at being laughed at by the father and son, went upstairs at the residence in the 2200 block of Ewing and returned with a flammable liquid that he sloshed on both men, court documents show.
Holliman is accused of using a barbecue lighter to set the two men on fire, a blaze that left the older man covered in burns more than 30 percent of his body and killed the younger man."

On the other hand, you have to wonder why a 60 something year old lawyer is letting a 32 year old unrelated man live in his house, and what kind of vetting he did.

According to his profile on Lawyers.com, Taylor was a criminal defense lawyer.

A South Texas police chief and a former police officer have been charged in connection with the theft of marijuana from the department's evidence locker.
Sullivan Police Chief Miguel Martinez and former Sullivan police officer Angel De La Mora were arraigned Tuesday on charges of theft by a public servant, abuse of official capacity and possession of marijuana stemming from the alleged incident in May 2015, according to online jail records.
