Under Virginia law, Michael Harvey will have to serve 85- percent of that time in prison.

The fire claimed the life of 21- year old Christopher Mirch who was asleep inside the Radford fraternity house when it was torched two years ago.
Prosecutors say this is a tragic case because they don't believe Harvey intended to kill anyone when he set fire to
a piece of furniture as revenge--- for an earlier dispute involving his friends.
