Last 5 convicted in a fatal home explosion be sentenced

INDIANAPOLIS – A man who was among the five people convicted in a deadly Indianapolis house explosion is the last to learn of his punishment.

Glenn Hults faces between six months and three years in prison when he is sentenced Wednesday in Marion County.

The 50-year-old pleaded guilty to assisting a criminal in the November 2012 house explosion that killed a couple who lived next door and destroyed or damaged more than 80 homes. Prosecutors say Hults and others plotted to destroy the house to claim $300,000 in insurance money.

The four other suspects are already convicted. The owner of the house destroyed by the explosion, 51-year-old Monserrate Shirley, was sentenced last week to 50 years in prison.
