DARLINGTON - The Argyle teen accused of helping his brother set a deadly house fire to collect on insurance money was scheduled for sentencing Friday, July 19, but instead he brought forward a motion to withdraw his June pleas of guilty, based on new evidence that the state's key witness told conflicting stories about his whereabouts the night of the fire. This is not the first change of heart for Jeremy Wand, who turned 19 Friday. He pleaded not guilty at his arraignment last December.
