$50,000 bail for Clay man who started fire at Baqir home

Joshua Brennan

The Clay man accused of burning down a manâ??s home was arraigned Wednesday.

A judge set 31-year-old Joshua Brennanâ??s bail at $50,000. Brennan was being held on no bail for burning down Muhammad Baqirâ??s home in December.

Baqir was the driver in a head-on crash on Route 57 that killed Meagan Patterson in November.

Brennan is accused of using that tragic crash as an opportunity to burglarize Baqirâ??s house when he was sent to jail.

Brennan was also indicted in another burglary in North Syracuse.

He is due back in court on June 28.
