Jurors took a short time to reach a unanimous verdict Tuesday in the arson trial of Mark Allan Misgen, finding the 43-year-old Ellendale man guilty of first-degree arson and insurance fraud, both felonies.
The conviction stems from two fires in 2011 that destroyed the family’s home. The verdict came on the seventh day of trial, which began with the jurors hearing closing statements from both sides. Steele County Attorney Dan McIntosh reviewed his case that related Misgen to the fires that happened within hours of each other.
