Northampton Arson-Murder Suspect Arrested

A 25-year-old Northampton man accused of setting 15 fires in town, including one house fire that killed two of his neighbors, was charged this morning with two counts of murder and held without bail.
Anthony P. Baye pleaded not guilty Tuesday at his arraignment to those charges and counts of arson and armed burglary in Northampton District Court.
Court documents show Baye was interviewed by police in the area the night of the fires. Police say Baye was soaked, smelled strongly of alcohol and appeared nervous.
