Shaul Spitzer, the 18-year-old butler of the Skvere Rebbe, is due in criminal court in Rockland County today on arson and attempted murder charges. Spitzer tried to burn down the home of Aron Rottenberg, a New Square dissident, in May.
Spitzer attacked just after 4:00 am while the Rottenberg family was sleeping. It was only because one family member was watching a video monitor showing live security camera footage that the family was saved. However, Aron Rottenberg was severely burned over most of his body as he wrestled with Spitzer in an attempt to stop Spitzer from setting his family and home on fire.
I'll post details about today's court appearance when they become available.
