Sherman Pair Charged with Arson

A Chautauqua County man and woman are accused of setting an SUV on fire to get insurance money.

Sheriff’s deputies say a week after the SUV co-owned by 46-year-old Terri Seekings of Sherman was damaged they learned the fire was probably intentionally set so she could collect the insurance money.

27-year-old Kenneth Brightman is accused of starting the fire. He was charged with arson and conspiracy and sent to jail.

Seekings is also charged with arson and conspiracy, but was released on her recognizance.
