NORFOLK, Va. — A Norfolk man has pleaded guilty to setting his wife on fire in 2018, killing her.
Delano Grangruth admitted to first-degree murder and arson charges.
The crime happened in the 6200 block of Wailes Avenue in Norfolk back in April of 2018. Investigators found Grangruth's wife, Kathleen, confined to a chair and badly burned. They say Grangruth poured gasoline on her, set the fire, and then ran out of the house.
Grangruth is due to be sentenced in March.
