CARTERSVILLE, Ga. -- The Bartow County man accused of burning down a neighbor's house Wednesday morning has been captured.
Phillip Roger Bennett, 58, was taken into custody Thursday by U.S. Marshals in Murphy, N.C. He has since been returned to Georgia.
Cartersville Police Capt. Mark Camp said the suspect faces nearly a dozen charges, including arson, aggravated assault, criminal property damage, cruelty to children, second-degree burglary, reckless conduct, criminal trespass and terroristic threats.
Bennett suffered burns to his hands and arms during the incident and was admitted to the burn unit at Grady Memorial Hospital, where he would stay until Friday.
Camp said on Friday that Bennet would be taken from Grady to the Bartow County Jail that afternoon.
