A Willard man facing extradition to Arizona on charges of sexual molestation and murder has been sentenced to one to 15 years at the Utah State Prison for a 1987 arson at an Ogden trucking company.
The sentence was imposed Friday on Robert John Casey, 48, but 2nd District Judge Ronald O. Hyde stayed the prison term pending a final determination on the Arizona charges.However, Hyde ordered Casey to pay $13,465 in restitution and a $2,500 fine, plus a 25 percent surcharge for an April 13, 1987, fire at the Keep on Trucking Co.
In March, an eight-member jury found Casey guilty of burning a semitrailer truck parked at the company. The fire set another parked truck ablaze.
Hyde said a detainer would be placed on Casey in Arizona and that he would review the sentence depending on what happens there.
Earlier this week, 1st District Judge Gordon Low ruled Casey could be extradited to Flagstaff, Ariz., where he faces charges stemming from the Nov. 6 death of 14-year-old James Haney.
The boy's body was found behind a convenience store. Coconino County Sheriff's Detective Michael J. Rice said Haney died of massive head injuries.
