Iowa Man Sentenced to Prison for Meth Lab Fire

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - A 33-year-old Iowa man has been sentenced to up to 50 years in prison for his role in a meth lab fire and for stealing ingredients to make meth in a separate incident.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports Michael Lee Newell will have to spend at least nine years in prison before he could be considered for parole.

Newell's attorney, Ronald Langford, says his client's drug problem drove him to commit crimes.

Newell suffered severe burns on his hands in 2011 when a meth lab caught fire in a Waterloo apartment building.

Prosecutors say he also took lye and lithium batteries from Menards to help another person make meth in 2012. And Newell was sentenced for a December 2013 burglary where six handguns were taken.
