Three charged for mobile home fire that killed 12-year-old boy

GEORGETOWN COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Georgetown County investigators say three people have been arrested in connection to an Andrews house fire that killed a 12-year-old boy in March.

The Georgetown County Sheriff's Office charged 39-year-old Marissa Cohen, 40-year-old James Miller and 43-year-old Randy Collins with one count each of conspiracy to commit arson and first-degree arson.

On March 29, deputies responded to the report of a mobile home fire at 10 James Drive in the Andrews community of Georgetown County which resulted

in the death of a 12-year-old boy.

As a result of the investigation, Georgetown County Sheriff’s investigators in conjunction with investigators of the South Carolina Law Enforcement

Division determined the fire was deliberately set.

A report states that throughout the course of the investigation, Marissa Cohen, the mother of the 12 year old victim, failed to cooperate with law enforcement. The sheriff's office says Cohen established residency in Kentucky shortly after the incident.

On Friday, Cohen was taken into custody by Kentucky State Police. Authorities say on the same day, Miller was taken into custody and transported to the Georgetown County Detention Center.

Collins surrendered to law enforcement on June 9, 2014.
