City man found guilty of 3 deaths by arson in 1996


A 38-year-old Baltimore man was convicted yesterday in Baltimore Circuit Court of three 1996 arson deaths.

Kevin Michael Johnson, 38, of the 2600 block of E. Madison St. was found guilty of three counts of first-degree murder, arson, burglary and attempted murder.

Jurors took about 3 1/2 hours to convict Johnson of burning down a house in the 1800 block of Ashland Ave. on Dec. 13, 1996, because his ex-girlfriend, who lived there, would not reconcile with him.

Killed in the fire were Carolyn Flowers, 34; her boyfriend, Darryl Johnson, 32; and Parrish Williams, 2, a neighbor for whom they were baby-sitting.
