Baptist Pastor Charged with Setting Fire to Church

Dr. Joseph Howard, pastor of the Metropolitan Baptist Church in Albany, New York, was arrested on Friday and charged with first degree arson, and is being held without bail. Investigators believe that Howard tried to burn down his church to collect on the insurance.

The Church and Reverend Howard were using federal grants to build low cost housing in a very controversial project in that neighborhood. Investigators say they continue to look into allegations that some of that money was misappropriated.
