TN - Alan Mooney, 62, found dead after arson fire, Statesville, 29 Aug 2014
The son of the man killed in a Wilson County fire on Aug. 29 has been formally accused of murdering his father by setting fire to his home. Alan Mooney Jr., 38, was arraigned Friday by Judge Brody Kane after indictments were issued by the Wilson County grand jury. He entered a not guilty plea.
Mooney Jr. is the son of Alan Mooney Sr., 62, whose remains were found after the fire at the home on Armstrong Road in the Statesville community outside Watertown.
Charges were first-degree murder, aggravated arson, two counts of arson, and abuse of a corpse. Mooney Jr. was being held without bail on those charges.
It would be an understatement to call this a tough week for the Mooneys. Throughout the past five years, the family has endured accusations, a trial, and other obstacles. In fact, some situations appear eerily similar and equally heart-wrenching.
Richard Mooney, 36, Alan Mooney, Jr.'s brother, was accused of killing a man before setting his house on fire in DeKalb County. "You can't take away the fact two brothers may stand ultimately accused of a very similar crime," said Joshua Crain, Richard's former attorney. "Certainly odd."
DeKalb County deputies, the TBI and the Tennessee Bomb and Arson unit investigated the case. Richard was accused of murdering Bob Senick, 63, then setting his trailer on fire... The jury found Richard Mooney not guilty on all counts.
