(KILGORE) - An arson charge has been added for a 21-year-old Kilgore man already jailed on multiple assault charges.
Gregg county sheriff's investigators say Tucker Scott Thedford confessed to setting a blanket on fire in a home on Steele road, which led to fire damage at the structure. Justice of the peace B.H. Jameson set Thedford's bond at $50,000 this morning.
He was already in the Gregg county jail on $35,600 bond for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in rusk county and forfeiting bond on a Gregg county assault/family violence charge.
