'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Connellsville man found guilty of arson

A former Everson man was found guilty of arson following a two-day trial in Fayette County.

Jurors deliberated for less than an hour on Tuesday before finding Jeffrey Allen Michael Blystone, 20, of Connellsville guilty of arson and reckless burning.

State police say Blystone handed a disposable lighter to a juvenile who set a pile of garbage on fire at 231 Morrell Road, Dunbar Township, on April 18, 2011.

Morrell Volunteer Fire Department responded to the engulfed fire and was assisted by numerous other departments in the area.

Senior Judge Ralph Warman ordered Blystone held in the county prison until he is sentenced on April 8.
