DURANT, OK -- A Bokchito man pleads no contest to arson after he is accused of torching vacant homes in Bennington.

Lonnie Williams, 60, was sentenced to 15 years in prison on Friday, online court records show. Police say Williams was seen at the site of fires at three homes and a shed last September.

Police say the buildings were all abandoned and the utilities were turned off. The court clerk's office says Williams was previously convicted on two arson charges in Bryan County back in 1987 and 1998. 

At that time, he was sentenced to 20 years in prison, but was released in 2006.
