Rome brothers accused of urinating on nativity during church burglary

Cori Marsh

Two brothers are under arrest, accused of urinating on a religious symbol while stealing from a church two years ago.

Rome Police tell CNY Central that 22-year-old Cori S. Marsh and 20-year-old Andrew T. Marsh of Rome are under arrest in connection with the burglary of St. Peterâ??s Catholic Church on East Liberty Street. Police say in January 2012 officers were called to the church to investigate the theft of food and electronic equipment.

Police say DNA evidence collected from the scene linked the alleged crime to the Marsh brothers. Police say one or both of the brothers are accused of urinating on a nativity statue during the alleged crime.

The Marshes were arrested Thursday on charges of second degree burglary, and are being held in Rome Policeâ??s jail.
