DICKSON, Tenn. (WSMV) – A Tennessee man is accused of stabbing his wife, dousing her with gasoline and setting their home on fire on Monday night, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

The TBI said the domestic incident occurred in the 1200 block of North Charlotte Street in Dickson. First responders were called to the home in response to a house fire.

Authorities found the woman inside the home with multiple stab wounds. During the investigation, agents determined that 28-year-old Zachary Mowel is allegedly responsible for the attack and arson.
