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.
