The St. Joseph County man accused of setting his foreclosed house on fire then disappearing was back in court Monday morning.

Douglas Wilcox, 62, is charged with arson after a house fire in the 21000 block of Sandybrook Dr. in August.

Wilcox’s former home was in foreclosure at the time.

He was supposed to give the keys to the new owner on the day it burned down. After a search that lasted a few weeks, officers were able to locate Wilcox at a casino in Battle Creek and arrest him.

He’s due back in court next Friday with his trial scheduled to start in January.
