According to the criminal complaint, the victim told officers he had broken up with Abagail earlier in the week. 

The victim reported receiving several SnapChats from Abagail with another man after the break up with messages saying she was "his girl now."

In addition, the victim told authorities Abagail posted a SnapChat of a jar of papers on fire on their deck. 

The victim says he then received a snapchat saying "I'm going to burn down this place."
