OTTAWA COUNTY (WKZO) -- A man who pleaded guilty to burning several flags in Ottawa County has admitted guilt in a separate arson case.

William Howerton pleaded guilty Monday to setting fire to a sign in the Yankee Candle store at Kent County's Rivertown Crossings mall in March.  He'll be sentenced in late November.

Over the past few months, Howerton has also been charged with burning flags in Ottawa County, Hudsonville and Jenison.
