Ex-Wife Charged In Arson At Processing Facility
A woman has admitted starting a fire at a Natrona County game processing facility.
Tye Brock pleaded guilty to one charge of third-degree arson, after investigators say she started the blaze at Pearce Custom Butchering and Processing, just west of Casper.
The Casper Fire Department determined the October fire was intentionally set.
Investigators found a lighter fluid bottle inside the building, and determined that the fire started in a pile of clothes.
Brock later told Natrona County Sheriff’s deputies that she did it because she was upset with her ex-husband.
She thought the two were getting back together, and when it did not work out, she started the fire after drinking earlier in the evening.
Brock remains free on bond awaiting sentencing.
