A trial date is now set for a man accused of setting on Erie building on fire. 

After eight extensions to file pre-trial motions, 34-year old Tony Crawford is now expected to face trial in July.  Crawford is charged in connection to a fire in February of 2016 that destroyed Fred’s Beds on East 12th Street.

That fire also damaged the property next door, Dominick’s Restaurant.

In trial, he’ll face a felony count of malicious destruction of property by fire.
