Brockton: Father and stepson to return to court in arson case

Two arson suspects from Middleboro will be back in court later this week.

45-year-old Mark Sargent and his stepson, 23-year-old Jeanmarie Louis, are accused of setting fire to a building in West Bridgewater and were arrested back in January.

Police had been tracking the pair for weeks after they found Sargent sitting in his S.U.V. near a December fire at the Marshfield Marina.

Authorities say one or both of the men have been linked to a string of fires across the South Shore since then.

Sargent and Louis are due to  appear in Brockton Superior Court on Thursday.
