ANCHORAGE - An Anchorage man has admitted trying to kill his roommates by setting his apartment on fire.

Andy Garay pleaded guilty Thursday to arson and attempted murder.

Garay was living with his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend when the trio got in a drunken scuffle in June of 2008.

Witnesses said they saw Garay with a gas can in his hand the next morning. Prosecutors say he lit the apartment building on fire with the intent to kill the couple inside.

Garay is expected to be sentenced in June. He faces 27 years in prison.
