YALOBUSHA COUNTY, Miss. — Law enforcement confirmed to WREG that an arrest has been made in a trailer fire where the sister-in-law of former Mississippi State Representative Ashley Henley was found dead.
Assistant District Attorney Steven Jubera said Billy Brooks was arrested on an arson charge only. Additionally, he said a statement will be made on Monday.
Henley’s sister-in-law, Kristina Michelle Jones, was found dead inside the trailer December 26. Relatives said she died in a fire that was intentionally set the previous day.
Last weekend, former Mississippi House Rep. Ashley Henley was found dead at the same home where her sister-in-law died.
Law enforcement said both cases are still under investigation.
