(YOUNGSTOWN, OH) – 43-year-old Cheree Moore has been sentenced to at least 23 years behind bars for setting a fire that destroyed a Youngstown home and injured one person.

In December, a jury found Moore guilty of 2 counts of Aggravated Arson.

In August 2021, Youngstown police were called to Regent St. for a family dispute. Upon arrival, police were notified of a conflict between Moore and a family friend. During an investigation of the incident, Moore made a statement in front of police saying, “I am going to bring this house down.” Later, the home was set on fire, injuring a victim and destroying the home. Several days later, a warrant was filed to arrest Moore. A jury found Moore guilty of Aggravated Arson, and Judge Maureen Sweeney sentenced her to 23 to 28 and a half years in prison. The court later found Moore to be a repeat violent offender which also was a deciding factor in Moore’s sentencing and the judge’s decision.
