Wade admitted that he intentionally set the fire following an argument with his girlfriend and knowing that the stairs were the only means of exit from the apartment. Wade’s girlfriend and her young son were in the apartment located on Sixth Avenue in Charleston, at the time the fire was set. Wade pleaded guilty in January of 2014 to the charge of malicious destruction by fire. United States District Court Judge John T. Copenhaver, Jr. imposed the sentence.
The Charleston Police Department and the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives conducted the investigation. Assistant United States Attorney Blaire L. Malkin handled the prosecution.
