Description

A horrified court room looked on today as a man who had just been convicted of burning down his $3.5 million mansion collapsed and died in front of them.Michael Marin, 53, was found guilty of arson by a jury in Maricopa County Superior Court. He appeared shocked and closed his eyes as the verdict was read before appearing to put something in his mouth and wash it down with liquid in a plastic water bottle. Marin burned down his Phoenix mansion on July 5, 2009 after it failed to sell at a charity auction. No one was injured in the blaze but the charge of committing arson of an occupied structure holds the same number of years in prison in Arizona as second-degree murder. If you look you'll see this guy put something in his mouth at :35, then again at 5:06, then he's down for the count at 7:40.
