Timothy Albaugh of Moundsville is charged with felony arson after police say he set his home on fire.
The fire was on Jan. 10 and the home was destroyed. Donations amounting more than $1,000 were collected to help the family who lost everything.
However, Moundsville police said Albaugh poured gasoline all over the living and dining rooms and then set them on fire.
According to reports, gasoline was found inside the home. Police also said they believe Albaugh was drunk and high at the time of the alleged crime.
Albaugh didn’t enter a plea Tuesday because he was not arraigned.
Albaugh’s defense attorney asked for a competency hearing. Albaugh admitted in court he is taking antidepressants.
Prosecutor Jeff Cramer says Albaugh faces a significant amount of time in prison.
“His attorney made a motion that his competency and criminal responsibility be examined by a psychiatrist that was not resisted and they ordered counsel to set that up,” said Cramer.

 The judge instructed Albaugh to attend the hearings, which are very expensive to the state.
