Firefighter, wife indicted on arson charges
A firefighter accused of setting his home on fire in Warren County in December 2007, has been indicted on an arson charge by a Warren County grand jury.
Grand jurors meeting at the Warren County Courthouse in Warrenton on Monday returned the true bill of indictment against 24-year-old Jerry Ronald Fullwood, whose last known address was listed as Hephzibah, according to Cynthia Cheeley, deputy clerk of Warren County Superior Court. Mr. Fullwood's wife, Elizabeth, also was indicted on the same charge.
The couple remains free on bail.
Mr. Fullwood has been on leave with the fire department since his arrest. His status remains the same, according to McDuffie County Fire/Rescue Services Chief Bruce Tanner.
Woman charged after accident
A 28-year-old Appling woman was injured after losing control of her car while rounding a curve on foggy Boneville Road in McDuffie County last Saturday night.
Trooper Willie Ramsey of the Georgia State Patrol post in Thomson said Staci Brooke Socky, of the 2900 block of Old Thomson Road, was traveling south in a 2004 Honda Civic when she lost control, flipping the car in a ditch.
Ms. Socky was cited for failure to maintain lane and seatbelt violation.
