A Seneca County man will spend 17 years in prison for setting his house on fire last year. The Blade reports 73-year-old Lloyd Hicks of Bellevue was convicted Tuesday on charges of felonious assault, abduction, and aggravated arson.

The incident in question happened last September. Hicks tried to drag his wife back into the house he had set on fire. He also fired a gun at a deputy who responded to the scene.
