  • A 32-year-old eastern Missouri man has been sentenced to eight years in prison for arson fires at four buildings.
    Federal prosecutors say 32-year-old Roy William Gunn set fire to the buildings in Elsberry during a three-month period in 2011. The buildings included two city-owned structures, a convenience store and a tax service office.
    Gunn, of Elsberry, pleaded guilty in October and was sentenced Wednesday.
    Investigators originally said Gunn was responsible for seven fires, causing damage of about $500,000.
