MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A West Tennessee man was jailed after investigators said he set his parents' house on fire purposely.

Memphis police said that, in September, 28-year-old Corderious Corley went to his parents' house on Clearbrook Cove at around 2 a.m. and set the house on fire. No one was inside the home, but the home was destroyed.

WREG reported that Corley was arrested recently thanks to a tip.

Police said Corley set the house on fire after having problems with his mother.

He was charged with aggravated arson and is scheduled in court next week.
