The man who set fire to the Hotel Botetourt will spend the next seven years in a secured mental facility.
Dwayne Bowman is a former hotel resident.
He pled guilty to arson in June saying that he was hallucinating and angry when he set the fire.
The blaze gutted the 147 year old hotel that served as a home for disabled adults.
No one was injured.
Bowman was sentenced yesterday to 40 years in a mental hospital. The judge suspended all but seven years of his sentence.
Even after his death--the fight concerning Hugh Finn continues.
The former newscaster died at a Virginia nursing home yesterday --eight days after his feeding tube was removed.
Finn had been in a persistent vegetative state since his 1995 car accident.
After he died the local medical examiner ordered the body taken to a funeral home for examintion and his medical records were seized.
The Washington Post reports that at the request of relatives, a judge ordered the body returned to the family.
The judge also denied county officials access to Finn's records, saying further medical investigation was unnecessary.
University of Virginia officials have ordered a review of the university's medical center.
The Board of Visitors appointed a committee today, saying events of recent weeks require the board to devote special attention to the center.
The hospital is at the center of the baby-switching case involving a Buena Vista family, and mix-ups involving infants who died.
The committee is to report its findings in January.
