Prosecutors have amended the charges against a man suspected of setting a series of fires in Northampton, including one blaze that killed a World War II veteran and his adult son. A Hampshire County grand jury handed up a new indictment Tuesday charging Anthony Baye with six counts of misleading a police officer. Each charge relates to a separate interaction Baye had with law enforcement, including two on the morning of the fires on Dec. 27, 2009, and in subsequent interviews. The Daily Hampshire Gazette reported that charges of attempting to burn a dwelling and attempting to burn a motor vehicle were dismissed. Baye, 26, faces two murder charges in a fire that killed Paul Yeskie Sr., 81, and Paul Yeskie Jr., 39. Baye has pleaded not guilty. (AP)
