Indiana Man Found Guilty of Murder for Fatal Insurance Scheme

25 15.07.2015 Инфо

An Indiana jury on Tuesday found a man guilty of murder and arson for trying to burn down a house for insurance money in November 2012.
The act sparked an explosion that killed two neighbors and damaged scores of nearby homes.
Mark Leonard was found guilty on all 53 charges brought against him.
Marion County prosecutors said they are seeking a sentence of life without the possibility of parole.
Prosecutors said the blast was caused by using a microwave oven on a timer to ignite natural gas that was allowed to build up in the house.
Leonard's former girlfriend, Monserrate Shirley, agreed to plead guilty, while three other men are charged in connection with the case.
