ORC Duo charged in Home Depot arson reject 10-year sentences
The two men charged in connection with an arson at the Home Depot in Kochville Township, MI., have rejected 10-year sentencing agreements and have elected for trial which may lead to longer sentences.

The men are charged with conducting a continuing criminal enterprise, single counts of third-degree arson and first-degree retail fraud, and separate counts of conspiring to commit those crimes. Prosecutors say Furline and Jenkins, who lived in Mount Morris in Genesee County, conspired to use the fire as a distraction to steal merchandise from the Home Depot.

The smoke from the fire got "really black, really fast, and there was a lot of it," said Marciak, the store clerk.

Furline-Walker said she and her son had done something similar the day before at the Home Depot at 4380 W. Corunna in Flint Township.

An affidavit for a search warrant authored by Saginaw County Sheriff's Detective Aaron Simons states a male placed a table saw on the shopping cart and that a woman pushed the cart out of the store following the fire. Twenty minutes later, at the Home Depot in Burton, the same male returned the saw.

Furline has at least 20 prior felony convictions, including recent ones that involved him assaulting police officers to the point that they were hospitalized, Saginaw County Sheriff William Federspiel has said. Jenkins has at least eight prior felony convictions dating to 1983.
