A witness told police that the baby’s mother received a text message from Michael Sanders telling her to get the child out of the house.

A house fire that killed a 9-month-old girl and her grandparents last week was intentionally set by the girl’s father, authorities said Monday.

Michael Sanders, 23, of Trenton, is charged with three counts each of murder, felony murder and aggravated assault, two counts of aggravated arson and one count of causing widespread injury or damage.

The 23-year-old man, was arrested early Monday at a hotel in Plainsboro. The charges stem from a fire at a duplex in Hamilton Township that broke out around 3:40 a.m. Friday.

Flames quickly engulfed both sides of the two-and-a-half story wooden house, causing a partial roof collapse.

The baby, Malani Sanders, and her grandmother, Tiffany Abrams-Jones, 42, were pronounced dead at the scene. Her husband, Prince Jones, 50, died Sunday from injuries he sustained in the fire.

Two other people who lived in the home, including the baby’s mother, were seriously injured in the fire.
