On February 15, 2017 the Redwood County Attorney’s Office filed charges against two former Redwood Falls residents.  Deitrick Aaron Gill, age 35, was charged with one count of 2nd Degree Arson and one count of Conspiracy to Commit Insurance Fraud.  Tasha Nicole Comstock, age 31, was charged with one count of 2nd Degree Arson and one count of Insurance Fraud.  

The charges stem from an incident in the City of Redwood Falls on August 26, 2016, when the Redwood Falls Police and Fire Departments were dispatched to a vehicle fire in front of the couple’s home.  Based on information and evidence obtained after the fire was extinguished the Minnesota State Fire Marshall’s Office was contacted and subsequently took over the investigation.
