DENTON, Md. (WJZ) -- A 33-year-old Denton man has been charged with arson after the state fire marshal's office said he set fire to a car he had crashed while driving with a suspended license.
Nicholas Conner is charged with second-degree arson and malicious burning. The fire marshal's office said the fire happened in the early morning hours of December 13.
Investigators later determined Conner damaged the 2014 Ford Focus in a single-vehicle crash and then set it on fire to hide the damage, the fire marshal's office said.
He faces up to 25 years in prison and/or $35,000 in fines if found guilty.
