BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A Bismarck man has been convicted of felony arson in connection with a fire last November that heavily damaged his fiancee’s home.
The Bismarck Tribune reports Spencer Norton was found guilty on Friday following a two-day trial.
Norton also faces a new charge filed Thursday of felony terrorizing for threatening comments he allegedly made while being held at the Burleigh-Morton County Detention Center.
Court documents say Norton threatened to harm police officers who were involved in the arson investigation.
