TROY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — It began almost a year and a half ago when Troy fire and police found the Second Avenue apartment up in flames, but it ended in court on Thursday.
All three suspects were sentenced on Thursday for setting the fire and for causing the death of 82-year-old Grace Halpin.
“It was 3:20 a.m., the cops showed up at the door,” Halpin’s daughter read.
The daughter of Halpin trembled as she read her victim impact statement.
Her mother was killed in the Lansingburgh arson in May 2015.
“When my dad died when I was younger, I promised her that I would take care of her,” Halpin’s daughter read. “I felt like looking after her was my responsibility and I hadn’t been able to protect her from the crime that was committed that ultimately took her life.”
