Three people are facing charges following a mobile home fire that killed a 12-year-old boy in March.

Marissa Cohen, 39, James Miller, 40, and Randy Collins, 43, all of Andrews are each charged with one count each of first-degree arson and conspiracy to commit arson.

Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the fire at 10 James Drive in Andrews March 29 and determined after an investigation in conjunction with the State Law Enforcement Division, that the fire was deliberately set, said agency spokesman Carrie Cuthbertson.

David Coombs died as a result of the fire, according to the Georgetown County Coroner’s office.

Cohen, the child’s mother, failed to cooperate with law enforcement and moved to Kentucky shortly after the fire, Cuthbertson said. No other details were available.
