US man guilty of arson at topless coffee shop

A man blamed for a fire that destroyed a topless coffee shop in Maine was found guilty of arson Friday.
Prosecutors said anger and jealousy caused Raymond Bellavance Jr. to set fire to the coffee shop where his ex-girlfriend worked as a waitress. Deputy District Attorney Alan Kelley told jurors Bellavance was quick to anger because the former girlfriend was having a relationship with the shop's owner.
The Grand View Coffee Shop featured topless waitresses. It burned down in June 2009. No one was injured.
The defense said Bellavance didn't do it.
