MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A Hedgesville man, charged with arson, was found innocent due to insanity Wednesday in the burning of a house where he was living, court officials said.
Banner Cornell Catlett, 21, is also charged with murder in the unrelated slaying of a church volunteer.
Berkeley County Circuit Court Judge Thomas W. Steptoe committed Catlett to 20 years in a state mental hospital, according to Prosecuting Attorney Pamela Games-Neely.
But Steptoe ordered Catlett to be held in the Eastern Regional Jail near Martinsburg until his murder trial on June 17, Games-Neely said.
