Let me repeat. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Unless a woman learns to tame her anger, she will do just about anything when a man breaks her heart.
Hiram, Georgia – A heartbroken woman has been charged with 14 counts of first-degree arson after she set her home on fire when she lost it in a divorce, damaging 20 other homes in the process.
According to the state insurance and safety fire commissioner’s office, Adrienne Satterly was in the process of leaving her home when she set a pile of mattresses on fire in the dining room.
The 41-year-old newly divorced woman, then left her home along with a suitcase, her two cats, and walked to Walmart an hour away to call 911.
Emergency services received her call about 3:25 a.m. on Sunday.
In 911 audio obtained on Tuesday by The Constitution, Satterly never mentioned a fire. She told a dispatcher she had a ‘kitty cat and a suitcase’ and asked if someone could pick her up from Walmart.
‘Where do you need them to go?’ the dispatcher asked.
‘To Greystone,’ Satterly said. ‘By the hospital.’
She gave her address to the Rosemont Court home but told the dispatcher that she had been ordered to leave the residence due to a case.
We don’t know if she was ever picked up from the Walmart, but Satterly was arrested for public drunkenness and arson, in addition to animal cruelty, after two dogs and a cat perished in the fires at other homes.
Sunday was windy so the fire spread to 20 other homes on the block.
Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens estimated property and content loss totaled more than $1 million.
Satterly is currently being held in the Paulding County Jail without bond. She faces up to 20 years in prison on each count.
According to her Google+ profile Adrienne makes jewelry for a living.
