The Millcreek Township man accused of causing an arson fire that destroyed an east Erie furniture store, is now scheduled to enter a plea.

Tony Crawford, 34, is set to enter a plea in federal court next week.

In March of 2017, a federal grand jury indicted Crawford on a felony count of malicious destruction of property by fire.

Crawford is accused of starting the February 2016 fire that leveled Fred's Beds Furniture.

Crawford is scheduled to enter a plea on June 17, at 12:45 p.m.
