Hudson Man Charged with Arson
A Hudson, New Hampshire, man charged with arson and attempted murder was arrested in Boston Wednesday.
Members of the Boston Police Fugitive Unit arrested Gerald Gutekunst, 73, of Central Street at around 2 p.m. near Massachusetts General Hospital on Fruit Street.
Gutekunst had a warrant issued against him out of Hillsborough County for charges of arson of an occupied structure and attempted murder.
The charges stem from an incident on April 29 at the three-family apartment building he was living at on 194 Central St.
According to Hudson Police, Gutekunst was rescued from the burning building early that morning but was believed to have intentionally caused the fire.
