A Springdale man accused of burning his former girlfriend’s apartment was found guilty by a jury Thursday after about 45 minutes of deliberation.
Donnie R. Fronterhouse, 48, was found guilty of arson and residential burglary. Prosectors said he set fire to Tara Sue Ramirez’s Keystone Crossing apartment on Electric Avenue. The fire caused more than $100,000 damage to the complex.
Fronterhouse has denied he set the fire. He chose not to testify.
