CEDAR BLUFF, Ala. (AP) - A woman who sustained serious burn injuries in an arson fire in Cedar Bluff has died from her injuries.

The Gadsden Times reports (https://bit.ly/1U15iXs) that 50-year-old Donna Marable was found Friday in the front yard of a Cedar Bluff residence with serious burns. She was flown to a burn unit at Grady Hospital in Atlanta and died there Wednesday.

Police arrested 50-year-old Aaron Lee Rochester on Sunday on charges of attempted murder and first-degree arson.

Cherokee County Major Crime Unit Investigator Josh Summerford said at the time of Rochester’s arrest that charges could be upgraded if Marable didn’t survive.

Marable and Rochester had been in a relationship. Both lived in the house at the time of the fire.
