Additional arson case details were provided during a March 30 sentencing hearing for a Golden Valley man. Prosecutor Bob Moon said 60-year old Robert Damiano threatened to burn the home last July when his wife essentially had him evicted by having him served with an order of protection.
Moon said the woman fled into the desert when Damiano returned to the property and torched the uninsured home the very next night. Moon said Damiano essentially destroyed his wife’s life by carrying out his arson plot.
The home was a total loss. The woman was not injured.
Damiano was convicted of arson and assault related charges through a plea agreement. Mohave County Superior Court Judge Lee Jantzen imposed a 7.5-year prison term.
