A former Everson man convicted of arson in March was sentenced Monday to serve a maximum of two years in a state prison.

Jeffrey Allen Michael Blystone, 20, of Connellsville was found guilty of arson and reckless burning following a trial in Fayette County Common Pleas Court.

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

The vacant, two-story structure was destroyed.

Senior Judge Ralph Warman Monday sentenced Blystone to a sentence of one to two years.
