      Man Accused of Church Fire to Face Judge
      By City News Service January 30, 2013

      A man accused of setting fire to a Greek Orthodox church in Rancho San
      Diego is scheduled to be arraigned at the El Cajon courthouse today.

      Darin Wayne Williams, 38, was arrested late Sunday morning on suspicion
      of arson, burglary and committing a hate crime within hours of a fire
      that caused about $250,000 in damage at Saint Gregory of Nyssa Greek
      Orthodox Church.

      No one was hurt in the 4 a.m. fire at 1966 Maryann Way, on the corner of
      Jamacha Road.

      Investigators from the sheriff's Bomb/Arson Unit and the federal Bureau
      of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were summoned. They
      announced the arrest less than 10 hours after the fire but did not
      immediately disclose what led them to identify Williams as their suspect.

      Rev. Simeon Corona, a Greek Orthodox priest, told U-T San Diego that
      Williams has been in psychiatric hospitals and was recently released.

      He had been renting a room from a parishioner and allegedly became upset
      after he was told he could no longer stay there unless he continued
      taking medication, according to the newspaper.
