A man who lit several people on fire during an attempted robbery in Denver has been sentenced to 80 years in prison.

Prosecutors with the Denver District Attorney’s Office say 36-year-old Terrance Hurt was sentenced Thursday for the December 2012 attack. He was convicted of attempted murder, assault, burglary, attempted aggravated robbery and arson.

Investigators say Hurt entered a home and sprayed gasoline on several people before lighting them on fire. Four people were injured, two seriously.
