Schenectady arson suspect gets additional time to prepare for trial

Posted:

ALBANY, N.Y. -- A high profile Schenectady arson case is getting some extra time.

Robert Butler was charged in a federal complaint with setting the May 2 fire that killed 33-year-old David Terry, 3-year-old Layah Terry, 2-year-old Michael Terry, and 11-month-old Donavan Duell. Five-years-old Safyre Terry was also badly burned and remained in critical condition for a number of days following the incident.

According to court documents, the defense was granted 45 additional days to prepare its case.

Prosecutors say Butler used gasoline to start the fire at 438 Hulett Street.
