A minister at a Virginia church faces charges of setting his house and car in Chesterfield County on fire.
Chesterfield County police had investigated the fires as a possible hate crime because a racial slur had been painted on the house. Police believe 41-year-old Olander D. Cuthrell, who is black, painted the slurs on his home before he set it on fire.
Police charged Cuthrell on Tuesday with two felony arson counts following a joint investigation with the FBI.
Cuthrell is a minister of music at Good Shepherd Baptist Church in Petersburg.
