TUPELO – A Saltillo man was arrested Tuesday and charged with arson and aggravated domestic violence.

Nathan M. Cron, 34, of Saltillo, had his bond set at $300,000 Tuesday afternoon in the Lee County Justice Court.

The Lee County Sheriff’s Office was called to the scene of a fire Saturday night on County Road 931 in Saltillo.

Lee County Sheriff Jim Johnson alleged the fire was set to the mattress in Cron and his wife’s bed. Cron left the home when the house caught fire and his wife and two children were in the house.

Johnson said they have responded to domestic disputes at the home before, but nothing of a violent nature. No one was injured in the fire.
