By  | 

Scott County (WVLT)- Two neighbors are in jail tonight.

Each is charged with first degree murder and arson involving another neighbor's wife and home.

39 year old Gary Sellers and 37 year old Robert Bell, both of Helenwood, were arrested this morning by Scott County Sheriff's Detectives and Tennessee Arson and Bomb Agents.

The two live in the Tunnel Hill area near Oneida and are charged with arson and first degree murder in the death of Melissa Chandler.

Chandler died from injuries suffered when her home burned early Sunday morning.

Sheriff Anthony Lay says another neighbor provided the key clue.

"Observed a red pick-up truck with a very loud pipe on it that was our clue to get us looking for some suspects."

Sellers and Bell are each under a $1 million dollar bond.
