Man pleads guilty to Vt. church arson

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — A Burlington, Vt., man has pleaded guilty to setting fire to a church steeple but says he doesn't remember doing it.

As part of the plea deal, 32-year-old Aliaksandr Bychkou (alek-SAND'-er BEECH'-koo) will face deportation back to Belarus.

The Oct. 23 fire caused at least $1 million in damage to the College Street Congregational Church. The mid-19th century bell tower could not be saved.

Bychkou pleaded guilty to second-degree arson and burglary charges on Friday.
