  • You can fool some of the people, some of the time....

    ASHBURN, Ga. (AP) - A black couple whose home was covered in
    racial epithets and torched Saturday night is accused of starting
    the fire themselves.
    The house owners - Patrick and Shanda Burwell - are charged with
    felony arson for the fire. They were arrested late Wednesday after
    an investigation by state fire experts.
    "We had some suspicions we picked up on as soon as we got
    there," said Ashburn Police Chief Ben Sumner. Sumner wouldn't
    elaborate on why police thought the blaze and graffiti were done on
    purpose. The Burwells originally told officers that they came home
    from dinner to find their house on fire.
    Adrian Newberry, 22, was arrested Thursday and also charged with
    arson.
    "He essentially made statements that the Burwells hired him to
    start the fire and say it was racially motivated," said Gary
    Rothwell, special agent of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
    After the fire, Georgia Insurance Commissioner John Oxendine
    classified the fire an arson and considered filing it as a hate
    crime.
    State authorities also offered a $10,000 reward for information
    about the culprit.
