Man gets life in prison for setting truck afire, killing 2
BANGOR, Maine (AP) — A homeless man convicted of setting a delivery truck afire and killing two transients sleeping inside has been sentenced to life in prison in Maine. Justice Ann Murray imposed the maximum penalty on John De St. Croix. He argued with one of the victims before the fire was set, and surveillance video placed him at the scene in Bangor. He was convicted last year of arson and murder. Killed were 43-year-old Michael Bridges and 36-year-old Desiree York. The father of York was escorted from the courtroom after he shouted names at De St. Croix and stepped toward him.
