(Cleveland, OH) -- A Cleveland man is going to jail for a long time for starting the house fire that killed nine people. Antun Lewis was sentenced Friday to 35 years in prison after being convicted in the deadliest arson in the city's history. Prosecutors said Lewis used gasoline to set the blaze that killed a woman and eight children attending a birthday sleepover in May 2005. A federal judge had ruled that Lewis' IQ was too low for him to get the death penalty. Lewis has denied setting the fire.
