2 JSU students accused in campus blaze

An early morning fire Thursday on the campus of Jackson State University has been ruled arson and two students are in police custody.

Marlon Jackson, an 18-year-old freshman from Flora, and Dwight Lindsey, a 19-year-old freshman from Harperville, are each charged with arson. They have been transported to the Hinds County Detention Center in Raymond, according to an article on www.clarionledger.com.

JSU spokesman Anthony Dean said the students lived in the dorm where the fire occurred.

"These students are on interim suspension and charged with arson, fire setting, damage to property, and dangerous threatenings," said Marcus Chanay, dean of students. "Final action will take place after an investigation has been completed."
