JONESVILLE, N.C. — State and local investigators are looking into the circumstances of how a Jonesville woman died in a house fire Sunday, including questioning her husband about his possible involvement in the case.
The Winston-Salem Journal reported that Terrie Lynn Parsons, 49, died in the fire that damaged her home at 309 East End Blvd., according to a report by the Jonesville Police Department.
Terrie Parsons died of smoke inhalation, said Dr. Shari Brown, a forensic pathologist at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.
Brown conducted the autopsy on Terrie Parsons, she said. When asked if the victim suffered a painful death, Brown said, “I can’t comment on that.”
Michael Eugene Parsons, Terrie’s husband, was injured in the blaze at their home in the northwestern Yadkin County town.
Michael Parsons, 46, was arrested Sunday after Jonesville police accused Parsons of refusing the orders of the officer who was questioning Parsons about his wife’s death, an arrest warrant states.
Parsons then was charged with resisting a public officer, a misdemeanor. He was not charged with any other crime.
