North Platte man imprisoned for setting fires but not letting wife flee

North Platte man imprisoned for setting fires but not letting wife flee

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. – A 27-year-old man has been given five to 10 years in prison for trying to set his North Platte home on fire but not letting his wife leave.

Lincoln County District Court records say Lucas Vollmer was sentenced Monday. He’d pleaded no contest to felony charges of arson and false imprisonment. Prosecutors dropped two related charges in return for Vollmer’s pleas.

A court affidavit say the two had argued at the home on Dec. 16 last year, and he wouldn’t let her leave. The affidavit says he nailed shut the front and back doors and then used a propane torch to set fire to carpet and a T-shirt. The affidavit she put out the fires and then fled to safety.

He was arrested later that day in Gothenburg.
