A man from Argyle who helped his
brother set fire to his house to
kill his family, has beeen
sentenced to life in prison.
Green County Judge Thomas Vale
ordered that sentence Thursday (8/22)
for 19-year-old Jeremy Wand.
Judge Vale has also ordered that Wand
be eligible for parole in 35-years.
Earlier, Judge Vale had rejected
Wand’s request to withdraw his
guilty plea, and that he should be allowed
to have a trial. Wand thought he should be
able to change his plea because his
sister-in-law Sharon Wand had
changed her story about the night
of the fire.
Jeremy Wand admitted to helping
Armin Wand III set fire to the house.
Armin had told Jeremy he would give
him $300 from a life insurance policy
if he helped him set the fire.
The fire killed Jeremy’s three
nephews, and the unborn child
Sharon Wand was carrying.
Armin Wand III was sentenced
in April to three consecutive life
sentences without parole in
connection with the fatal fire last
