Indiana man charged with attempted murder, arson for 2020 Anderson fire
LAUDERDALE Co., Ala. (WAFF) - New evidence and tips have led investigators to charge an Indiana man with attempted murder and arson for a house fire.
Court records show John W. Morrison was charged with attempted murder and arson for his connection to the Aug. 27, 2020 house fire in Anderson.
The court documents accuse Morrison of pouring gasoline on the porch before starting the fire. Morrison allegedly targeted the house because one of the occupants was going through a divorce with a relative of his.
Through tips and investigation, investigators learned Morrison rented a cabin at Joe Wheeler State Park from Aug. 24 to Aug. 27 that year.
Morrison was arrested in Columbus, Indiana and transported to the Bartholomew County Indiana Jail where he awaits extradition to Lauderdale County Jail.
Officials say more arrests are expected in the near future as the investigation continues.
