Williamsport, Pa. — A jury found a Cogan Station man guilty on Wednesday of burning down a motorcycle club February 9, 2020.
During a two-day trial at the Lycoming County Courthouse, defendant Damon Millington, 43, along with a jury of his peers, listened to the testimony of the chief investigator and fire investigator, Millington’s landlord, and his ex girlfriend as the prosecution built a case to prove he was guilty of burning down the Road Knight Motorcycle Club in Hepburn Township.
Millington faced 12 charges ranging from felony arson to witness intimidation, criminal tresspass, risking catastrophe, theft, and other related charges to setting the fire that destroyed the motorcycle club.
A felony strangulation charge was withdrawn, and a charge of convicted felon not to posess a firearm was severed, according to Matthew Welickovitch, assistant district attorney.
The jury found Millington guilty on felony charges of arson, intimidation of a witness, criminal trespass, burglary, criminal mischief, and risking catastrophe.
