Texas man who claimed to be victim of hate crime charged with arson

A Texas man faces charges after initially claiming he was a victim of a hate crime when his rental house burned to the ground. 

According to authorities, 50-year-old Mario Roberson of Huntsville was charged with arson after the bodies of two people were found inside what was left of the home destroyed in June.

FOX 26 Houston spoke with the attorney of Mario Roberson, who had originally claimed the fire was arson and a hate crime.

Roberson said he was being targeted and that racist graffiti was sprayed on the house before the fire.
