Nurse Receives Life in Prison for Setting Fire

A former nursing home nursing manager set fire to beds while the resident slept and is sentenced to life in prison. When fire rescue arrived, they found smoke coming from the windows and everyone in a state of panic.

The 37-year-old male nurse and arsonist who murdered 11 nursing home residents was expressionless as the sentence for the November 2011 crime was handed down. Some of residents died at the scene while others died later at the hospital.

Both inside and outside of the courtroom, family members of the victims were expressed emotions from outrage to applause as the former employee was issued his sentence and then later escorted from the courtroom. For more, read the story.
