GIRDWOOD - The Anchorage district attorney says a Girdwood man who burned down his own house, hoping to collect $95,000 in insurance money, has been convicted of arson and fraud.

Prosecutors said 62-year-old William Halliday faces more than six years in prison when he is sentenced.

The insurance company refused to pay his claim for damages from the September 2007 fire.
