Appeal Launched By Windsor Man Who Injured Girl In A House Fire

An appeal has been filed by a Windsor man found guilty of setting a house on fire and injuring a girl.

Ken Kormendy, 45, was sentenced back in November to 11 years in prison for setting the house on fire on Balfour Blvd. in October 2015.

He was found guilty of three counts of attempted murder for pouring gasoline in a bedroom where Sheri Rueda and her daughter Isabel were sleeping in their home.

He is accused of lighting the fire but he has maintained his innocence throughout the trial and sentencing hearing.

Isabel Rueda, who was 7-years-old at the time, suffered burns to 15% of her body including severe scarring on her face.

The paperwork was filed with the Ontario Court of Appeal on November 29th to appeal the sentence and on November 30th to appeal the conviction.
