BLOUNT COUNTY - AL -

The Blount County District Attorney's Office has doubled the reward amount for information regarding the fire death of an elderly woman in February.

Rhonette Lyles, 77, was found dead in a house fire on Mormon Road in the Horton community Feb. 8, and investigators believe the blaze was intentionally started.

District attorney Pamela Casey said an anonymous donation from a relative of the victim, who worked for over 30 years as a teacher at Cleveland Elementary School prior to her death, allowed her office to now offer $20,000 in reward money for tips leading to an arrest in the case.

Anyone with information regarding the fire and/or death of Lyles is asked to please call the Blount County Crime Stoppers at 205-274-2746.
