Kentucky man charged with arson, murder in son’s death
LONDON, Ky. (AP) — A Kentucky man has pleaded not guilty to charges related to his toddler son’s death in a trailer fire.
WKYT-TV reports that 26-year-old Vaughn Brock entered the plea Friday to charges of murder and arson in the death of his son, Joseph.
An arrest citation says the nearly 2-year-old boy was found inside a washing machine after the fire March 30.
Court records say Brock told police that he fell asleep while smoking a joint and woke up to the trailer filled with smoke. Brock was found Wednesday at a home in Keavy, Kentucky.
Brock is being held in jail as he awaits a court hearing. Online jail records do not show if he has a lawyer.
