DOVER, Del. (AP) - Two men have been sentenced to 10 months in prison after pleading guilty to a trio of arsons at rural Delaware churches.

The Delaware State News (https://bit.ly/1M5UXmp) reported Thursday that co-defendants Joseph T. Skochelak, of Felton, and Alex J. Harrington Jr., of Harrington have been sentenced in Kent County Superior Court. The two men pleaded guilty in April to three counts each of second-degree arson, third-degree burglary and second-degree conspiracy.

The men were arrested after a police investigation into overnight fires on Dec. 2, 2014 at three Felton-area churches.
