Man charged in Joliet home explosion; Girlfriend still missing
A man has been charged with arson in the explosion that leveled a Joliet home this summer.
Police arrested James Borg this morning as he left the Rehab Institute. He was found in the wreckage of the home back in July.
Borg shared the house on South East Circle Drive with his now-missing girlfriend. Fire marshal investigators determined Borg may have cut the dryer’s gas line in the house and set the fire that caused it to explode on the evening of July 14th.
Borg is scheduled to appear in court tomorrow in Will County.
There are no new leads on girlfriend Anne Gay who has been missing since June 9th.
