Knob Noster Man Sentenced for Arson at Jefferson City Business
The former owner of a Jefferson City business was sentenced to seven years in prison for starting a fire at the business.
The Jefferson City News-Tribune reports Kurt Steidley, of Knob Noster, was sentenced Wednesday for second-degree arson. The fire was started New Year's Day 2011 at the Sporting Goods warehouse.

Steidley will remain free during the appeals process.
