A man who had set fire to his in-laws' apartment in Perpignan at the end of July surrendered and was indicted after his father-in-law's death, we learned from the Pyrenees prosecutor's office -Orientales.

On the night of July 23 to 24, this man in his thirties had started a fire in an apartment in a working-class district in the center of Perpignan, where his parents-in-law were, before fleeing.

He surrendered on Friday afternoon, we learned from a source close to the investigation.

A family conflict at the origin of the drama

He was presented to the investigating judge on Sunday, who indicted him for "wilful destruction by fire resulting in death" and "willful violence with a weapon not resulting in incapacity for work", specifies the Perpignan public prosecutor's office.

The suspect was detained on Sunday for these facts related to an "intra-family conflict", according to the same source.

The first victim, a man in his 50s, died of his burns midweek, while his 70-year-old partner remains hospitalized in serious condition.
