Just before 3:30 a.m. Aug. 9, investigators say during or after a domestic dispute Shaw sprayed lighter fluid on a bed in the apartment in the 200 block of S. Shawnee Terrace and set the bed on fire. The children, ages 13, 7 and 5, were inside the apartment at the time.

The fire caused heavy damage to the building. Arson investigators said Shaw had been at the woman's workplace a short time before arguing with her and throwing things around.
