Arsonist Sentenced in Rawlins
RAWLINS, Wyo. (AP) — A Cheyenne man has been sentenced to four to nine years in prison for his part in an arson-for-hire case.
31-year-old Eric Farrar was sentenced Monday after previously pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit second-degree arson. His sentence will run concurrently with a four- to nine-year sentence he is serving for his part in a murder-for-hire case.
Prosecutors dropped three arson-related charges against Farrar in exchange for the plea and his testimony against Ryan Brown, the man he says hired him to burn the home down. Farrar says Brown also hired him to kill a man he suspected was having an affair with his wife.
Brown has pleaded not guilty to charges of conspiracy to commit first-degree arson and conspiracy to commit second-degree arson.
