The fire was not delightful four days before Christmas at a home in Oxford.
On Thursday afternoon, police responded to a call of a domestic dispute and found a local man burning the belongings of his significant other on a lawn at 14 Pines Bridge Road.
Keith D. Graham, 47, who lives at the address, was charged with second-degree breach of peace, second-degree criminal mischief and open fire kindling without a permit. He was released on a $1,500 bond and was arraigned Friday morning at Derby Superior Court.
The case was listed Saturday as awaiting disposition on the state Judicial Branch website.
