Christopher Gillie

Christopher Gillie, charged with setting the December fire at a Buckingham Township home that killed an 81-year-old man, was formally arraigned Friday morning, a day after the Bucks County District Attorney’s Office filed notice of aggravating circumstances in the murder case against him. 

Gillie, 61, of Dunmore, Lackawanna County, was arraigned before Common Pleas Judge Raymond F. McHugh on charges of criminal homicide, attempted criminal homicide, theft by unlawful taking, aggravated arson, criminal mischief, aggravated assault, recklessly endangering another person, persons not to possess firearms, two counts each of burglary and criminal trespassing and three counts of arson endangering persons. 

Gillie remains imprisoned without bail in the Bucks County Correctional Facility. 

On Thursday, the Bucks County District Attorney’s Office filed notice reserving its right to seek the death penalty against Gillie, listing three aggravating factors the Commonwealth would seek to prove should it choose to pursue the death penalty against him.
