Rongione arrest
Charges have been filed in an April 20 incident which destroyed the David Morris residence on Pepper Lane in the Cosby community of Cocke County. Cocke County Detective Bryan Murr announced Monday he has charged Carmen Rongione, 40, Pepper Lane, Cosby with arson, aggravated burglary, burglary and theft over $10,000. Rongione and an unidentified accomplice allegedly burglarized the Morris home and outbuilding, before setting the home on fire resulting in a loss of $173,000. At the time, Deputy Michael Shelton said the Morris family was on vacation in Florida at the time of the blaze. Mr. Morris reported that a 2016 Cub Cadet had been stored in the outbuilding, along with tools. Further investigation revealed two security cameras on the property. One of the cameras had been turned off and the memory card removed, however the second was functional and showed two subjects taking many items from the home before the fire. Morris estimated the value of the large cabin at $160,000. Detective Murr said Agent Tommy Morlock of the Tennessee Bomb and Arson agency headed up the probe which resulted in the arrest.
