CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) – A St. Louis County jazz club owner has been sentenced to probation for setting fire to his building.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Wednesday that 40-year-old Lozell Stiles of Florissant must also pay $1,000 in restitution. He pleaded guilty in July to second-degree arson.
The Halls Ferry Inn Jazz Club burned in February, also damaging an adjoining business. No employees or customers were in the club at the time of the fire.
