Peoria Heights man sentenced to 10 years for residential arson

A gavel rests on a judge's bench in a blurry courtroom. The text "WCBU Courts" sits on top of that photo.

A Peoria Heights man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to setting a house on fire last year.

Skylar Walker, 32, admitted to setting a house in the 1000 block of East Rouse on fire. He was sentenced last week.

The house sustained major damage. Two homes on either side of the residence also were damaged.
