Northern Ky. Teen Admits Firebombing Home

COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A northern Kentucky teen has entered a guilty plea to an amended charge in the firebombing of a mobile home.

The Kentucky Enquirer reported the plea deal involving 19-year-old Justin Stahl of Walton and said Stahl apologized for throwing a firebomb into the Independence home of a juvenile who he claimed had failed to pay him for marijuana.

Stahl pleaded guilty to second-degree arson and wanton endangerment - the latter because a 13-year-old girl was in the room into which the device was thrown.

Commonwealth's Attorney Rob Sanders said charges are pending
against a juvenile involved in the case.

The government wants a 25-year sentence for Stahl.
