Bottle Bomb Suspects Indicted

Five of the men accused of fire-bombing the home of St. Bonaventure University students in October have been indicted by a grand jury.

Mark Braithwaite, Gary Coleman, Adam Peterson, Donald Phearsdorf and Calvin Weis all face arson and reckless endangerment charges.

Investigators say in the early morning hours of October 17, a fight prompted seven men to conspire to throw a fire bomb into the Allegany apartment.

The 5 men are scheduled for arraignment on April 4.

Two people have already pleaded guilty in connection to the incident. Steven Sprague of Olean will be sentenced May 2. Andrew Piccirillo of Portville is scheduled for sentencing on May 23.
