YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A man and woman accused of setting the Firestone mansion in Pine Lake on fire have been indicted by a Mahoning County grand jury on unrelated vandalism charges.
Alexis Little, 20, of Youngstown, and Brian McKinney, 20, of Boardman, are each charged with vandalism in connection to graffiti spray painted at Mill Creek Park.
A Mahoning County assistant prosecutor said the pair painted graffiti at Lanterman’s Mill and in restrooms at the park.
Little and McKinney are also facing arson charges in the Oct. 21 fire that destroyed the Firestone mansion on Lipply Road.
Prosecutors said the couple had been using the mansion to do drugs when they decided to set fire to it Oct. 21. Investigators said the pair got caught after bragging about what they had done in front of co-workers.
