Teen Arsonist Who Burned Down Wrong House Gets Sentenced

  • The youngest of three teens charged in a 2020 arson that killed a family of five was sentenced in late January after pleading guilty in December.
  • Dillon Siebert, 17, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and the use of a weapon during a violent crime, which enhances the sentence, according to Denver 9 News. Siebert was sentenced as an adult to seven years in the youth offender system on Jan. 25.
  • Prosecutors said in a previous hearing for Bui and Seymour that the arson was intended as revenge for the theft of Bui’s cellphone, but a tracking app used to locate the phone led the teens to the wrong house.
