Jealous Arsonist Sent to State Prison

The man who tried to burn down an apartment house because he was jealous that his ex-girlfriend was living with another man has been sentenced to up to five years in state prison.

23-year-old Justin “Fuzzy” Schlopy went to 54 Elm Street in August of 2012, filled a garbage can with clothes and alcohol and set it on fire.

The fire left nine people homeless and killed several dogs, cats and birds.

In July of 2012 he tried to set the same building on fire using gasoline.
