LONDON, Ky. (WYMT) - A grand jury indicted a Laurel County man on murder and first-degree arson Friday.
Vaughn Ashley Brock, II is accused of killing Joseph Brock on March 30. Brock would have been two years old in April.
According to court documents, Vaughn intentionally set his home on fire, which killed 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. Kentucky State Police have not released the cause of death.
Police said Vaughn ran from the fire and was not found until five days later. Vaughn's mother said she believed Joseph caused the fire, not Vaughn.
