Far Rockaway man convicted of trying to set fire to the lover of his children's mother
A Far Rockaway man was convicted of trying to kill a love rival by setting him on fire, the Queens district attorney's office said Wednesday.
Stephan Schlackman, 46, was convicted Tuesday of attempted murder, second-degree attempted arson and reckless endangerment following a two-week trial.
Schlackman attacked the man and his roommate in May 2011.
His first trial ended with a hung jury. Schlackman will be sentenced Aug. 6 and faces 25 years in prison.
