Woodbury Police Department Taija Russell

The woman went to a petrol station, bought lighter fluid and a lighter, and set her lover's house on fire with him inside.

The victim, a Woodbury man who has not been identified, told police that he had fallen asleep after making arrangements to have sex with a woman he referred to as his "side chick", according to a probable cause statement obtained by the Cherry Hill Courier-Post.

Taija Russell, 29, of New Jersey was arrested last week after the fire, which destroyed the man's home.

The Daily Mail reports Russell then went to a gas station to buy lighter fluid, matches and a lighter.

Police say that Russell then started a fire at the man's doorway, fleeing the scene as the fire spread.

Hashian crossed paths with Johnson a year later, when the actor was filming Disney's " The Game Plan ". Hashian is the daughter of the late Sib Hashian , the drummer for band Boston in the '70s.

The man woke up in the middle of the night August 4 to find his home filled with smoke.

Russell, a resident of Gloucester Township, is charged with attempted homicide, aggravated arson, aggravated assault, endangering/creating substantial risk of death and criminal mischief for the alleged torching last week.

The victim did admit to police that he did indeed invite Russell to his home, but labeled her as a "side chick", according to a statement he gave to the police.

Firefighters managed to rescue the man's dog from the fire, but noted the home and its contents "were completely destroyed", according to the Courier-Post.

Apparently in April, 33-year-old Tasia Young was charged with aggravated arson and confessed to the crime after her boyfriend kicked her out of his house after a threesome, asking the other woman to stay instead. Cops took him to a hospital, where he was treated for smoke inhalation and burns. Woodbury police said they found a barrage of threatening texts from Russell to the victim including a message that said, "I see you wanna die" and "You wasted my money to come out here".
