Three people have been charged with first degree Arson and Conspiracy to Commit Arson after an investigation into a March fire on James Drive in Andrews that resulted in the death of a 12-year-old boy.

Marissa Cohen, 39, of Andrews, and James Miller, 40, of Andrews, and Randy Collins, 43, of Andrews were each charged after an investigation by the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division determined that the fire was deliberately set, according to a news release from the Georgetown County Sheriff's office.

The release states that throughout the investigation, Marissa Cohen, the mother of the 12-year-old victim, did not cooperate with law enforcement.

She established residency in Kentucky shortly after the incident. On June 6 she was taken into custody by Kentucky State Police.

Miller was taken into custody on June 6, and taken to the Georgetown County Detention Center.

Collins surrendered to law enforcement on June 9, according to the release.
