A higher court has rejected an appeal by an inmate who was sentenced by a Huntingdon County judge to a decades-long term in state prison for setting a man on fire in Mount Union during the summer of 2020.

On March 29, the Pennsylvania State Superior Court affirmed the sentence of Talen Anthony Trice, convicted of attempted first degree murder for the July 23, 2020, attack on Samuel Watson who sustained third degree burns on over 27 percent of his body, along with multiple stab wounds.
