(HAMMOND)- A Hammond man could be sentenced to 155 years in prison after being convicted of three counts of murder by arson.
Jurors agreed with prosecutors that 35-year-old Steven Allen set fires that killed his wife, baby and a neighbor in July 2005.
Allen had claimed his wife Christy died shortly after entering their burning apartment to rescue their two-month-old daughter - before succumbing to smoke inhalation.
However, state fire experts said gasoline had been trailed through out the unit.
Allen's sentencing is scheduled for May 14.
