Arsonist sentenced to 30 years in prison

The death of two boys – due to a purposely set fire ---is sending a man to prison for 30 years. 65-year-old Alex Sawyer plead guilty to setting a fire in April of 2016. That fire killed 4-year-old Justice Stewart and 2-year-old Deshawn Watson. Circuit Judge Kathy Bradshaw-Elliott handed down the sentence (Thurs) in Kankakee Court. Sawyer plead guilty earlier. Records show Sawyer was upset with his landlord because his security deposit wasn’t returned.
