Pickens County Sheriff Todd Hall said a Black man is accused of trying to burn his house down with his two kids and wife inside of the home. Miraculously, the family survived with no injuries. Brian Jordan, 35, is charged with three counts of attempted murder and one count of arson.

Hall said Jordan poured gasoline throughout the house and set it on fire. His wife and two kids, who were in the home at the time, were able to escape the fire through the window.
The sheriff said the husband was burned in the fire, but he was treated at the hospital and later released.
Several nearby fire department agencies responded and helped put the fire out. Jordan is being held on a $500,000 bond at the Pickens County Jail.

A Black triple murder suspect in Oklahoma has confessed, saying he killed a neighbor first and cut her heart out to eat at home, the OSBI reported.
“He took the heart back to 214 West Minnesota, Chickasha,” an agent with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation told a judge in a request for a search warrant.
“He cooked the heart with potatoes to feed to his family to release the demons,” the agent wrote.
Lawrence Paul Anderson, a Black man, is accused of killing the neighbor at her home and then going to his home and killing his uncle and a 4-year-old girl on Feb. 9. He also is accused of stabbing his aunt. She survived.
The case already has sparked outrage because the repeat felon had been released early from prison in January. He had been sentenced in 2017 to serve 20 years behind bars but got out after Gov. Kevin Stitt commuted his time.
The governor commuted the sentence to nine years at the recommendation of the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board. Anderson served a little more than three years. He had been staying with his uncle, Leon Pye, and aunt, Delsie Pye, since his release.
“This has to be addressed by the Legislature, sooner rather than later, because more people are going to get killed,” Grady County District Attorney Jason Hicks said Feb. 11.
The prosecutor plans to charge Anderson, 42, on Tuesday. The death penalty “is on the table,” Hicks said Monday.
