EDINA, Mo. -- An Edina man has been arrested in connection with a car-torching incident last November.

Lewis County Sheriff David T. Parrish reported Mark D. Miller, 40, of Edina, was arrested Saturday on one count of tampering with a motor vehicle, a Class C felony.

The charge stems from a Nov. 21 incident at a LaBelle private parking lot which a Ford Mustang owned by an Edina man was found ablaze by a volunteer firefighter in Lewis County. The firefighter was able to use a fire extinguisher to douse the flames.

Miller is lodged in the Lewis County Jail in lieu of $10,000 cash only bond.

Assisting in the investigation were the Missouri State Fire Investigator's office and the Western Lewis County Fire Protection District.

Tony Baker recently watched a video of the 1991 Class A state championship game with his 11-year-old daughter. It had been several years since Baker, an all-stater as a senior at Pittsfield High School, had seen the game. "I sure was awful skinny, and those shorts were awful short," he said with a laugh. "But it was neat to watch. It's kind of a blur, but I can remember plays that were called in every game. It's so surreal."
