A Huntington man will serve time in prison and must pay restitution for setting fire to an apartment complex that left more than a dozen people homeless.
Quinton Kennie, 24, was sentenced in Cabell County Circuit Court Wednesday morning. The fire happened in February in the 800 block of Ninth Street in Huntington. Kennie pleaded guilty to arson in August.
Kennie was sentenced to serve 12 years in prison and was ordered to pay $160,000 in restitution to the insurance company, the Cabell County Prosecutor's Office said. Judge Paul Farrell also recommended that Kennie be banned from Cabell County if he is allowed parole.
