Man sentenced for setting fire to Ft. Bend County rental home

A judge sentenced a Fort Bend County man to eight years behind bars for setting fire to his rental home.

Keith Schupp, 39, pled guilty to arson in connection with the case. Investigators say Schupp originally set the fire in the Sienna Plantation subdivision back in 2009 to kill himself and destroy his ex-girlfriend's property. Schupp changed his mind and jumped through an upstairs window to escape.

On Tuesday, a judge told Schupp he had little sympathy for anyone who would start a fire in a crowded neighborhood with no regard for the safety of others.
