'Authorities say a North Las Vegas woman angered because a friend showed up to a dinner date with only $5 in his pocket later set fire to the man’s apartment in an attempt to kill him.

Kimberly Marika Johnson, 43, was booked Tuesday at the Clark County Detention Center on charges of attempted murder and first-degree arson. The charges stem from an incendiary blaze authorities say was deliberately set at a North Las Vegas apartment in the early-morning hours of Oct. 11.

An arrest report released by North Las Vegas Justice Court had the address of the apartment complex blacked out. The reports described the residence where the fire occurred at a “two-story, multi-family apartment complex” in the city.
Johnson, according to the victim, “threw her purse which was on fire” through the window into the front room of the apartment. The victim alleged to authorities that Johnson was “high on crystal meth” and that “she tried to burn me down.”

An arson investigator wrote the blaze was set with “willful and malicious intent.”'
