Iowa Man Gets 10 Years in Prison for Second-degree Arson

March 31, 2008

A Waterloo, Iowa man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for setting his ex-girlfriend’s house on fire.

Kelvin Scott was sentenced Wednesday for second-degree arson after a judge refused his request for a new trial.

Authorities say Scott, 44, burned his ex-girlfriend’s home in early December after calling her on the telephone and threatening her. He was found guilty in February.

Scott is also awaiting trial for second-degree criminal mischief. That charge stems from allegations he destroyed furniture and other items at the same house and began flooding the basement in September.
