Man who killed toddler in firebombing sentenced to life in prison

DETROIT (WXYZ) - A man who firebombed a house and killed a 2-year-old boy in Detroit two years ago will now spend life in prison.

Chantay Anderson lost her 2-year-old son, Josiah McCollins, when her home on Detroit's west side was firebombed in July 2010.

On Thursday, a judge sentenced Deandre Moore to life in prison.

Family members say Moore had a fight with his ex-girlfriend, Anderson's sister, earlier that day, and came back and firebombed the home as a niece was watching the toddler.

Moore was on parole at the time of the firebombing.
