Man Guilty of Setting Home on Fire

INDEPENDENCE, Iowa (AP) – A man has been found guilty of setting a fire that injured two people at Buchanan County home. A jury convicted 45-year-old Shane Heins on Wednesday of arson and two counts of attempted murder. He’d pleaded guilty June 16 to misdemeanor domestic abuse assault, second offense. The online court records don’t list a sentencing date. Investigators say Heins set the fire March 2 last year in Independence in an effort to kill his wife, Christina Heins, and her uncle, Nick Necker. Both were taken for treatment to University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics in Iowa City
