TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Businessman Todd Russell Fries has been sentenced to 12 years and 7 months in prison after being found guilty of unlawful possession and use of a chemical weapon back in October 2012.
A northwest Tucson couple, Myles and Karen Levine, contracted Fries' company, Burn Power Washing and had a 200-dollar dispute with him.
The FBI arrested Fries in 2011, accused of igniting chlorine tablets mixed with another chemical at the couple's home.
Agents testified in court that they discovered books on revenge and recipes for making explosives at Fries home.
After three weeks of testimony, the jury deliberated ten minutes before convicting Fries.
