INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A man was sentenced to serve 45 years in the Indiana Department of Correction for his role in the arson death of a man in 2015.

Jean Claude Brown pleaded guilty to the murder of Ralph Chew on Tuesday.

Brown was captured on surveillance at a gas station filling up a bottle with fuel and then walking in the direction of the home in the 3600 block of East New York Street.
