Schaghticoke man admits to several charges including arson

A Schaghticoke man faces 12 years behind bars after pleading guilty to a list of charges. Some stem from a fire on Fourth Street in Troy last September.

Matthew Woelfersheim admitted Wednesday in Rensselaer County Court to entering the building and setting a bag of charcoal on fire, which then set the building on fire.

Two people were in the building at the time.

Woelfersheim will be sentenced in March.
