Murder by fireWednesday, Anthony Brown, age 49 of Parkdale, was convicted of Murder in the First Degree.

Around 11 o’clock, New Year’s eve, Ashley County Sheriffs Deputies were dispatched to the 300 block of School Street in Parkdale, in reference to an incident where a man, later identified as Jesse Burton (47 years old}, was injured,

Allegedly, Brown had thrown  gasoline on Burton, setting him on fire. Mr Burton died as a result of his injuries.
