Thirty-year-old Davanh Phouangphet was arraigned Tuesday in Holland District Court on a charge of assault with intent to murder. A judge set his bond at $750,000.
Thong Phouangphet said his brother and the landlady argued Jan. 23 and she told him to take the music to another part of the house or be evicted. The house is in Holland Township.
Police said the suspect poured an accelerant on Le and set her on fire.
