A man accused of burning his former home is due in court Friday morning.

Police charged 62-year-old Douglas Wilcox with Arson for setting his old house on fire in St. Joseph County on August 12th.

Wilcox lost his home in a foreclosure and the new owners were scheduled to move in just days later.

Police arrested him nearly 3 weeks later at Firekeepers Casino in Battle Creek.

Wilcox is expected in a St. Joseph County Court room at 8:30 this morning for a bail review hearing.
