Grove City Murder Update - Scott Dunn Arrested

The case of the January 14 murder of Brandi Montgomery Dunn has taken a very important turn today, as her husband, Scott Dunn was arrested. He was charged with criminal homicide, three counts of arson and one count of abuse of a corpse.

Mrs. Dunn's death was ruled as blunt force trauma to the head. After her murder, the killer set fire to the 109 E. Washington St. house in an alleged effort to destroy evidence. The Dunns were house-sitting the Montgomery residence while Mrs. Dunn's parents were vacationing in California.

Mr. Dunn's arrest comes as a relief to residents who had stong opinions of Dunn's guilt, as he gave several different stories to authorities. Dunn had even altered the content on his and Brandi's MySpace Web site pages immediately after Brandi's death. Those who were most vocal about the case shared thoughts, opinions, and frustrations on the cyberslueth Web site, Huff's Crime Blog.

While homicide isn't a rarity in Pennsylvania, it is extremely rare in Grove City, a western PA town of approximately 8000 residents. The previous homicide was decades before.
