A man accused of setting his foreclosed home on fire was in court again Friday morning.

Douglas Wilcox, 62, is charged with arson in connection with an August house fire in the 21000 block of Sandybrook Drive. Wilcox was supposed to give the keys to the new owner the day it burned down.

After a search that lasted a few weeks, police were able to locate Wilcox at a casino in Battle Creek and arrest him.

In court Friday, a change in his bond was denied.

Dates were also set for his next hearing, which is scheduled for Nov. 25. Wilcox’s trial is scheduled to start Jan. 13.
