Georgia man faces attempted murder charge after allegedly lighting camper ablaze

A northeast Georgia man faces several charges, including attempted murder, after allegedly lighting his camper on fire during a domestic dispute, authorities said.

Al Lococo Jr., 35, of Clayton, was arrested Wednesday in connection with the Sept. 4 fire, according to a news release by the Office Of Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner. The fire sent Lococo and the other person inside the trailer to hospitals with burns.

The fire took place just before 8:15 p.m. in the 4300 block of Ga. 441 in Rabun Gap, the release said. The other person injured in the fire remains at Grady Memorial Hospital, but the person’s condition was not released.

In addition to the attempted murder charge, Lococo faces a count of first-degree arson, aggravated battery, false imprisonment and probation violation, the release said. More charges are also expected.

He remains in the Rabun County Detention Center without bond, the release said.

The Rabun County Fire Department and Rabun County Sheriff’s Office are assisting with the investigation.
