Michael Smith found guilty
(2007-05-17)
(WOUB) - An Athens County jury has found Michael Smith guilty of felonious assault but not guilty of attempted murder and arson.

The verdict was returned last night after several hours of deliberations.

Athens County Prosecutor Dave Warren says Smith will be sentenced on Monday.

He was accused of attacking his ex-wife and of setting fire to his Coolville home.

Warren says jurors apparently were not convinced Smith was trying to kill the woman and they apparently determined the fire was accidental and not intentionally set.
