ANACOCO, LA (KPLC) -

A 32-year-old Anacoco man is facing seven counts of attempted second-degree murder after setting fire to a trailer following a domestic dispute, authorities said.

Vernon Parish Sheriff Sam Craft said James Aubery Moses was arrested early Sunday morning.

"We responded to a domestic disturbance in the Anacoco area," Craft said Monday in a news release. "Upon arrival, deputies observed a residence within a mobile home park on fire."

Witnesses said Moses and his spouse had an argument and that Moses threatened the residents inside the home, Craft said. The residents, four adults and three children, were not injured in the fire.

Moses was also charged with criminal trespassing and aggravated arson. Bond was pending.

In May, Moses was arrested after allegedly shooting at six people.

Mosses was charged with six counts of aggravated assault with a firearm and one count each of illegal discharge of a firearm and aggravated criminal damage to property. Bond was set at $36,000.

Craft said the incident in May began when Moses and a woman got into an argument in Sabine Parish.

"It was learned that the female victim left Sabine Parish and returned with her children to the Moses' residence in Vernon Parish," Craft said at the time. "The victims stated that Moses arrived at the location and immediately began to fire a weapon in their direction, striking the parked car three times."

Craft said the victims, three adults and three children, then sought shelter in another vehicle. Moses allegedly chased after them and fired at the vehicle they were in, Craft said. No one was injured in the incident.
