A former firefighter convicted of burning down his home and damaging two of his neighbors' homes, has been sentenced to two years behind bars and three years extended supervision. However, he will receive credit for the 350 days he's already spent in jail.
In November, Keith Rosenow, 46, reached a plea deal with prosecutors and pleaded no contest to one count of 2nd degree recklessly endangering safety and one count of unsafe burning of own building. Two other counts were dismissed.
According to Judge Greg Grau, Rosenow had been a firefighter with the Weston Fire Department for 16 years, but left in 2001.
Police say he started a fire at his home in the Lazy Acres Mobile Home park in Wausau on January 31, 2012. According to the criminal complaint, it was revenge against the manager for evicting him.
Rosenow's wife, Kathleen, 42, is also charged in the case. She's charged with unsafe burning of own building, and three counts of 2nd degree recklessly endangering safety, along with obstructing an officer.
Kathleen Rosenow's jury trial is scheduled in April and is expected to last two days. She's free on a $10,000 signature bond.
