According to court documents, Mark McAlister and Brian Morris conspired to break a natural gas line inside McAlister’s Little Caesar’s franchise, and left a candle near the leak in an attempt to destroy it.
In an interview with police, Morris claimed McAlister offered him $10,000 to do it, allegations McAlister denies.
Morris pleaded guilty in October to attempt to commit a felony, and will be sentenced May 2nd.
McAlister is on trial this week, facing 3 counts of conspiracy to commit first-degree arson. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
