    According to officials, Fords second arson fire was on Jan. 23, 2017 at 723 Russell Avenue. A Dodge Durango was set on fire, but there were no injuries.

    Man testifies about escaping fatal Akron fire that killed 2

    The Daily Record

    AKRON (AP) The sole survivor of an arson fire testified the man accused of setting the blaze that killed two people had been arguing with one of the victims beforehand.

    Thomas Hugley testified Thursday in Akron that he heard a loud noise, looked out the window of the basement where he was living and realized the structure was on fire, the Akron Beacon Journal reported.

    Hugley testified that after escaping through a basement door that he heard Gloria Jean Hart, one of the victims, screaming, We cant get out! Hugley said he was unable to grab a ladder in the backyard because it was secured with a chain.

    Stanley Ford, 60, faces capital murder charges in the 2016 deaths of Hart, her boyfriend, Lindell Lewis, and seven people, including five children, in an arson fire at another home in Fords Akron neighborhood in 2017.

    Ford has maintained his innocence.

    Asked by a defense attorney whether he saw Ford set the fire, Hugley testified that he did not.

    Authorities have said another neighbors surveillance camera recorded Ford going to and from the homes where the fatal fires occurred.

    Attorneys for Akron man accused in 9 arson deaths request mistrial

    The capital trial of an Akron man accused of starting fires that killed 9 people is scheduled to resume Tuesday after a 7-week hiatus because of the coronavirus pandemic.

    However, Joe Gorman and Scott Rilley, the attorneys for Stanley Ford, filed a motion Thursday requesting a mistrial — a step that would mean a new trial for Ford.

    “Stanley Ford is unable to receive a fair trial due to the pandemic and/or the delay and suspension of the trial testimony,” the attorneys said.

    Summit County Common Pleas Judge Christine Croce said she will address the mistrial request before the trial resumes.

    In the meantime, Croce and other courthouse staff have been preparing for the restart of the death-penalty trial, including readying a larger space so that Ford, the attorneys and the jurors can be spaced out.

    “We’re going to do our best and I think the way we have managed this courtroom is going to allow for that to take place,” Croce said.

    If the trial goes forward, it may be the only or one of a few trials proceeding this month in Ohio.

    Summit County has suspended all other jury trials until May 29.

    The jury selection in a criminal case in Ashland County ended abruptly this week after the defendant became ill and was taken to the hospital. (He later tested negative for COVID-19.) Judge Ronald Forsthoefel continued the trial until mid-May.
