A Senatobia man has been arrested and charged in connection with setting a house on fire following a domestic dispute, according to officials from the Tate County Sheriff’s Office.
Investigator Destin Johnson identified the suspect as Corey Allen Parmenter, 32. Parmenter was taken into custody Saturday, July 10, and charged with arson and simple domestic violence. He was detained at the Tate County Jail and held without bond.
Johnson said deputies were dispatched to a domestic disturbance in the 200 block of Lakeshore Drive in Senatobia Lakes on Wednesday, June 30. Witnesses reported smoke coming from the residence approximately 10 minutes after deputies left the scene. Johnson said no one was home and no one was injured.
The residence suffered extensive interior damage from fire, water and smoke. Larry Sowell, county fire investigator, and officials from the State Fire Marshal’s Office sifted through evidence at the scene and determined the blaze was deliberately set.
Johnson said enough evidence was uncovered during the investigation to charge Parmenter in connection with the incident.
The case remains under review by the Tate County Sheriff’s Office.
