Mich. Woman is Accused of Setting Fire to Her Ex-boyfriend’s House, Which Killed His Partially Paralyzed Mother


One count of murder, two counts of assault with intent to murder, and four charges linked to setting fires have been brought against Cinamon Charmaine Rigmaiden.

Prosecutors say Cinamon Charmaine Rigmaiden went to her ex-boyfriend’s house late on Monday, June 3, and put an accelerant on the front door. The couple had just broken up.

Prosecutors say the 31-year-old set fire to the Detroit home and then left the scene.

His ex-girlfriend wasn’t at home, but three other people were: his mother, Tina Dorrough; a 57-year-old guy; and a 65-year-old woman.

This 53-year-old man died in the fire. Wayne County officials say that the other two people, whose names have not been made public, were taken to the hospital right away to get help.

“Since when is setting fire to a house that people are living in the best way to end a relationship?” It was said in a statement by prosecutor Kym Worthy. “The accused in this case is said to have done things that are completely unacceptable.”

Maria Miller of the prosecutor’s office tells PEOPLE that Dorrough was paralyzed on one side of her body. This made it harder for her to leave the burning house.

One count of felony murder, two counts of assault with intent to kill, three counts of first-degree arson, and one count of third-degree arson were filed against Rigmaiden by Livonia police the next day.

Rigmaiden was charged on June 7 and sent back to jail. The prosecutor’s office says she has pleaded not guilty.

What Click on Detroit reported is that Rigmaiden’s lawyer said in court last week that she only meant to damage property and not hurt anyone.

Rigmaiden is due back in court on June 14 for a probable cause hearing.
