A Raleigh County man charged with first degree murder and two counts of first degree arson is arraigned in Beckley.

Police say multiple witnesses saw Carl Cox empty a bottle with accelerant over the front porch of a mobile home near Sophia and lit it on fire with a match. The victim, David Davis, was found dead in a back bedroom of the home last May.  An autopsy of Davis indicated he had soot in his lungs. 

Cox is being held in Southern Regional Jail without bond.
