WARNER ROBINS, Ga. — Police have charged a middle Georgia man with arson in a house fire that left his own mother dead.
Warner Robins police on Monday said they had arrested 28-year-old Spencer Bentley Brooks for first-degree arson.
Firefighters responded to the blaze around 1 a.m. Sunday. They found 57-year-old Lisa Rebecca Brooks dead.
Investigators said Monday that Brooks was jailed after being medically evaluated. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer representing him.
The Telegraph of Macon reports Spencer Brooks was paroled last month, according to Georgia prison records.
