Trial in case involving 2018 fatal Jeannette fire postponed so jailhouse calls can be reviewed

Brian Eric Rendon arrives at his preliminary hearing escorted by Westmoreland County sheriff’s deputies on Thursday, Aug. 23, 2018. He is accused of setting a fire in Jeannette that killed a woman and injured her granddaughter.

A jury trial in a 2018 fatal Jeannette fire has been removed from next week’s schedule to give defense attorneys time to review jailhouse phone calls made by the defendant in which prosecutors said he confessed to setting the blaze.
