A fire spread in a log cabin for a hot plate, which was near the kerosene with an accelerant. Henry Xavier Kennedy, the owner of the cabin, convicted of Arson because he got an insurance policy five days before the incident for $40,000 on the cabin and police found proof that Mr. Kennedy’s construction business was going through the loss of money, and Mr. Kennedy's explanation was poor to save himself as a suspect.
Henry Xavier Kennedy claims the guilty verdict in a jury trial for the crime of arson on September 23rd, 1981. He appeals that the jury charges, or instructions to the jury by the judge, were erroneous in many different ways and that there was not enough proof to convict him of the charge.
