LAKELAND, Florida, October 17, 2005 ( – A homosexual man has been charged with arson and insurance fraud after setting fire to a home that both he and his homosexual lover lived in.

Christopher Michael Robertson, 23, made the arson appear to be a hate crime, by spray painting “die fag” on the home’s steps before setting the building ablaze. The derogation was an apparent attempt to scare the man’s homosexual partner, Paul Day, away.
