In St. Louis, authorities have charged David Lopez Jackson with arson in connection with two of seven church fires in a predominantly African-American part of the St. Louis area.

Even though Jackson, 35, from St. Louis has been charged for the fires, federal investigators said there is no evidence of a hate crime.

The charges filed against Jackson on Friday in St. Louis Circuit Court were two counts of second-degree arson in the fires at Ebenezer Lutheran Church and New Life Missionary Baptist Church, both in the city.

St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson said investigations continue into the other fires — three in St. Louis, two in nearby Jennings — and Jackson is a suspect in all of them, according to an AP report at Mashable.
