Fatal fire brings arson charge

The Associated Press

        WEST UNION — A woman was charged with aggravated arson following a fire that killed a 50-year-old man, authorities said Friday.

        Stacey A. Cox, 22, of Stout, was charged Thursday and more charges were possible, said Misty Tumbleson, an investigations coordinator with the Adams County Sheriff's office.

        She said authorities received a call Jan. 4 of a fire at a rural home in West Union. Inside the ruins of the home, investigators found a body that was later identified as being the home's owner, Bob Ray Chamblin, according to Adams County Coroner Susan Dunkin-Blanton.

        She said the cause of death has not been determined. The body was sent to the Montgomery County Coroner's office for further testing and toxicology results weren't back Friday.

        Ms. Tumbleson said she believed Ms. Cox and Mr. Chamblin knew each other but didn't know how. No other details were available Friday.
