CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- A man found guilty of setting fire to his cousin's shed in June 2009 was sentenced Wednesday by Franklin County (Pa.) Court Judge Shawn Meyers to a minimum of four years in state prison.
Pennsylvania State Police charged Tod Karl Naugle, 38, with arson, retaliation against a witness or victim, criminal mischief, reckless endangerment and risking a catastrophe.
He was convicted of the charges in a jury trial in June.
Naugle, of Fairfield, Pa., told the judge Wednesday that he had issues with his cousin, Darwoll "Bo" Naugle, for 10 years. He said police failed to intercede when asked, but he said he handled the situation in the wrong way.
"I handled it poorly. I definitely should've gone about it some other way," Naugle said.
Meyers ruled Naugle owes $41,700 in restitution to be divided among several parties. He said part of his sentencing considerations were the dangers presented to emergency responders and neighboring houses on Dixon Road in South Mountain, Pa.
