A white defendant in Tennessee could be charged with a hate crime after he allegedly wrote a racist letter from jail claiming he set a black man on fire, leading to his death.

“I believe the Bible is about white people and for white people,” John Carothers allegedly wrote in a letter to a white supremacist group that was obtained by authorities. “I am in the Rutherford County Jail for burning a black man I set on fire with lighter fluid poured on his head.”

The article goes on to state the following:

The letter was written by Carothers, who was charged with first-degree murder after a 40-year-old Robert Miller was killed in a fire Carothers was accused of setting at a halfway home in Murfreesboro in March.

“The sheriff’s department found the letter in the outgoing mail,”  District Attorney Jennings Jones in Murfreesboro said, according to News Channel 5. “It is helpful evidence.”
