LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) — A man has been ordered to stand trial in fires that damaged the entrance of a Pennsylvania city hall and a nearby vehicle.

LNP newspaper reports that a district judge last week held all charges against 29-year-old Dwain London Jr. in the May 23 blaze at the Lancaster City Hall.

London is being held on $2 million bail on charges of terrorism, arson, reckless burning or exploding, institutional vandalism and conspiracy.

Mayor Danene Sorace has said London had been at a City Council meeting the night before speaking about actions the city was taking concerning family properties.

She said damage to the 130-year-old doors and stone front of the building as well as the vehicle has cost the city more than $100,000.

Another man also faces charges in the case.
