It was a second guilty verdict for a father accused of setting a house fire that killed his two young sons.

The blaze happened back in 1985 in Oxford Circle.

Jurors deliberated for six days before finding Daniel Dougherty guilty of second degree murder and arson Monday.

He was sentenced to life without parole.

Originally, Dougherty was given the death penalty for killing his 3-year-old and 4-year-old sons.

But that sentence was thrown out on a technicality.
