PITTSBURGH (AP) – County police say a man set on revenge started a fire that killed everyone in the alleged target’s home – six people in all – except for the target himself.
And Wednesday, a district judge must decide whether there’s enough evidence to send those charges – including six counts of criminal homicide – to trial in the case of 24-year-old Ryan Williams.
Allegheny County police say Williams broke into Keith Egenlauf’s McKeesport home early Oct. 18 and tossed a burning roll of toilet paper on a couch because Williams believed Egenlauf was to blame for Williams being recently jailed on some criminal charges.
Egenlauf escaped the fire, but was burned critically. But Egenlauf’s 55-year-old father and 27-year-old wife, and her four children, all perished in the fire.
