Sentencing date changed for Reed

LITTLE FALLS — Sentencing last week for a 53-year-old Sebeka man, who was found guilty Nov. 1, 2012, of first-degree arson for setting his own residence on fire on Aug. 24, 2010, was canceled in Morrison County District Court.

Judge Conrad Freeberg also canceled the sentencing and scheduled a motion hearing for Jan. 24 for Randy Donald Reed.

According to the criminal complaint, Reed was behind on the mortgage and that the mortgage company was foreclosing the home. Reed knew that the amount owed on the home was $127,000 and he had insurance coverage for $190,000. Reed said he spoke to his insurance agent a week or two prior to the fire, but they didn’t talk about his house insurance.
