2 men, boy, 17, charged in racially motivated fire 

August 31, 2001
Two Cecil County men were charged yesterday with federal civil rights violations, accused of setting fire to an Elkton house last month while a group of Hispanic men was inside.
     Federal authorities accused Christopher Cimorose, 33, and Murrell "Sonny" Webb, 19, of dousing the duplex home with gasoline and setting it on fire in an effort to intimidate the six Hispanic men who had rented the home a few weeks earlier.
     Three of the men were at home July 15 when a neighbor spotted the fire shortly after 10 p.m. They all escaped from the house unharmed.
