Man charged with setting Bucks County house fire that killed roommate's father

Christopher Gillie, 61, of Lackawanna County, allegedly stole his roommate’s car and used it to drive to her parents’ home in Bucks County, where he started a fire on Sunday morning that killed her father, 81-year-old Julius Drelick, prosecutors said. Phyllis Drelick managed to escape the home, but could not help her husband, whose disability prevented him from leaving when the fire short-circuited a chairlift. Gillie is charged with homicide and multiple related offenses in the incident.
