A judge has ruled that Box Elder man was insane when he torched his mobile home last year.
Authorities say 30-year-old Joseph Hodges dripped gasoline down a hallway before lighting the fire while his Girlfriend and her ex-husband were still in the mobile home.
There were no injuries.
Circuit Judge Janine Kern on Monday found Hodges not guilty by reason of insanity. The ruling came after testimony earlier from two psychiatrists.
