MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (AP) — A Marshalltown man accused of setting two fires in April says he wanted to commit a crime so he could be incarcerated.

48-year-old Van Gentry made the comments Monday during a probation revocation hearing linked to a separate forgery case.

Gentry is accused of setting a local church building and trailer home on fire in April. Records say Gentry later went to a police station and admitted to both crimes.

Gentry is charged with two counts of second-degree arson, second-degree burglary, third-degree theft and four counts of animal abuse. He has pleaded not guilty to those charges.
