BOONEVILLE – A Booneville man is awaiting arraignment after being charged Wednesday with arson.

Dustin Gerald Chapman, 25, of Booneville, was arrested Monday, shortly after Prentiss County Sheriff’s deputies were notified of the fire, and then he was later charged with arson.

The fire consumed a barn near Little Brown Free Will Baptist Church at the intersection of county roads 3301 and 3280.

Prentiss County Sheriff Randy Tolar said he expects a bond to be set Thursday.
