MINDEN, Neb. (AP) - A Kearney man given four years of probation for arson in Buffalo County is scheduled to be sentenced in Kearney County for a similar crime.

Online court records say 35-year-old Aaron Stones was sentenced last week in Kearney for setting fire to a pharmacy in Ravenna on March 25. He’d pleaded no contest and was convicted of felony arson.

The records show he pleaded guilty to the same charge in Kearney County for starting fires at a pharmacy in Minden on March 27. An arrest affidavit says Stones admitted setting fires at the pharmacy’s front windows and rear door.

His Kearney County sentencing hearing is set for Wednesday in Minden.

No injuries were reported in either blaze.
