WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) - A Kure Beach man charged in the deaths of two women in arson fires in Carolina Beach last year has been indicted on 38 charges.

Media outlets report that 22-year-old Marshall Hudson Doran has been indicted on two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of 72-year-old Mary Angeline Cochran and 43-year-old Darlene Ann Maslar.

The two died in fires authorities said were set in condominiums Dec. 6.

Among the other charges against Doran stemming from the fires are 11 counts of attempted first-degree murder, ten counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and two counts of arson.

During a hearing in December, Doran’s attorney, Roger Smith, said the Doran family is heartbroken and praying for everyone affected by the tragedy.
