A former Krum High School quarterback is in jail this morning after being accused of intentionally setting a house on fire earlier this month.
Denton County investigators arrested 18-year-old William Wojciak on Wednesday on a warrant for burglary of habitation with intended other felony -- the other felony is listed as arson. He’s being held on a $300,000 dollar bond.
If convicted, the teenager could spend the rest of his life in prison.
The house that burned on October 2 near Krum belonged to a Krum school board member, according the Denton Record Chronicle. The homeowner lost several pets in the fire including a dog and a cat.
The Chronicle also reports that several guns and jewelry were stolen from the house.
The 18-year-old had been a quarterback at Krum but was not enrolled this year, according to the Chronicle.
Wojciak was arrested in August for possession of a controlled substance, a few days before school started and had been dismissed from the school's football team.
