Santa Sophia Catholic Church Arson Will Be Sentenced Next Week

Santa Sophia Catholic Church Arson Will Be Sentenced Next Week
Sentencing is scheduled Thursday for Eugene Volk, an ex-con who pleaded guilty to setting a series of fires at a Catholic church near Mount Helix in October. 

The fire at Santa Sophia Catholic Church  caused more than $200,000 in damage.

He was arrested by ATF and Sheriff's Bomb & Arson Unit investigators two days after the fire at the Campo Road and Conrad Drive intersection while walking less than a quarter mile from the church.

Detectives arrested Volk without incident and he was booked on numerous felony charges including arson to an inhabited structure and vandalizing a place of worship.
