Boyd Fenton, who admitted to setting a barn fire at Tioga Downs Casino that killed 30 racehorses, has received an additional prison sentence for forgery. Fenton, 33, was sentenced to 1-3 years in state prison in Schuyler County Court.

In May, Fenton pleaded guilty to a felony forgery charge for forging an inspection sticker and displaying it in his car to deceive police. This sentence is separate from his earlier conviction.

In April, Fenton was sentenced to seven to 15 years in prison for the November fire that killed 30 racehorses, two cats, and injured a trainer trying to rescue the animals.
