Suspect in Louisiana Church Fires Facing Hate Crime Charges

The man suspected of setting a string of fires at historically black churches in Louisiana is now facing hate crime charges.

According to  several reports,  the district attorney for St.

Landry Parish filed the new charges against Holden Matthews Monday.

That's in addition to the arson charges he's already facing.

Last week, authorities  arrested the suspect  in connection with the fires, which broke out at three churches in the same parish over the course of 10 days.

The state fire marshal said the suspect may have been influenced by "black metal music," which has been associated with church burnings.

He pleaded not guilty to all the charges against him, and he has been denied bond.  Additional reporting from Reuters.
