Father pleads guilty to manslaughter after son found dead in washing machine
LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - A Laurel County man charged in connection to a deadly house fire pleaded guilty.
Vaughn Brock faced murder and arson charges but pleaded guilty to second-degree manslaughter, a lesser charge.
Neighbors say in 2019 they watched Brock run away while the home was burning.
According to court documents, Brock intentionally set his home on fire, which killed two-year-old Joseph. Joseph was found dead inside a washing machine after the fire was under control.
Neighbors said they could hear the toddler screaming during the fire.
