An 18-year-old man was charged with arson yesterday after a fire destroyed the interior of a Sikh temple in Williams Lake.
The RCMP said the Crown is also asking that the man be remanded in custody for a 30-day psychiatric evaluation.
He is accused of setting a fire on Sunday that caused about $500,000 damage to the Guru Nanak temple.
RCMP Corporal Mark Menard said police are confident the temple fire was not racially motivated. [Link]
