Another brother has been sentenced for a 2019 meth lab fire that resulted in the death of their 82-year-old grandmother.
Jarrett Gause, 36, of Corning, was sentenced to 364 days in the Steuben County Jail.
Gause took a plea deal earlier in 2022, according to WETM.
He pleaded guilty to Tampering with Physical Evidence and Falsifying Business Records.
Justin Gause, 24, of Corning was sentenced to three to nine years in prison for second-degree manslaughter last month.
The two brothers were accused of having a meth lab in the Village of Riverside home that caught fire in 2019.
Their 82-year-old grandmother, Gladys Ann Willow, died in that fire.
Investigators say the Gause brothers saved the meth equipment but did not make an attempt to save Gladys-Willow during the fire.
