The second trial of Antun Lewis, charged with setting the deadliest house fire in Cleveland history, ended today. He was found guilty.

Lewis could now face life in prison.

This second trial was granted after judges determined Lewis' first conviction was tainted by questionable testimony from known jailhouse snitches. Additional state inmates came forward to offer evidence that "proved" Lewis was framed.

Scene reported on the history of the fire and the courtroom proceedings following it.
