Valerie Dawn Hix

Valerie Dawn Hix, 47, of Fort Gibson and Teddy Franklin McElroy, 68, of Fort Gibson are charged in Muskogee County District Court with two counts of arson and one count of endangering human life during an arson.

Teddy Franklin McElroy
The case alleges that, in the early morning of May 7, the pair set fire to a woman’s house across the street from their own. The neighbor, Hailey Addison, told police she caught Hix trying to break into her house on May 6. Hix, she said, told her she was “going to burn down your house.”

On May 7, Addison woke up and her house was on fire. She walked across the street and retrieved a red gas can from Hix’s yard.

Police reviewed video footage and saw a white Buick four-door, and McElroy and Hix getting out.

The house was “fully involved” when police arrived to the scene.
