The ex-lover of the Barnesville woman accused of arson says he's not surprised Tara Andvik is trying to frame him. Keith Beam was on the stand for about 20 minutes. He says when he first heard about the fires on the Andvik properties he became concerned because she's the kind of person who'd try and frame him.

Beam is a TV producer and hunter for the outdoor show "The Wild Outdoors." He worked briefly with Andvik, and was romantically involved with her. When asked if he was responsible for any of the fires, he said, "Not in any way."
