LEROY, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginia authorities say two people have been arrested on charges stemming from a fire at the home of a jailed Jackson County couple.
Jackson County Sheriff Tony Boggs tells media outlets that 50-year-old Colena Kay Martin and 32-year-old Christopher Michael Hill were arrested Friday and held in the South Central Regional Jail pending arraignment.
The fire destroyed the home of Peter and Stephanie Lizon near Leroy. Boggs says the suspects live together in Ripley and had taken care of the Lizons' farm animals in the past.
The Lizons remained at the jail Friday. They were arrested on charges they violated a custody order for their 2-year-old son.
Peter Lizon was arrested on a malicious wounding charge in a 2012 case involving his wife, who moved afterward to Alexandria, Va.
