      Sentencing for man who left Kingsley woman to die in burning house

      Michael Piranian will be sentenced Thursday in the death of Kori VanHulle.

      A West Michigan man faces at least 30 years in prison for killing a woman from Kingsley.

      Michael Piranian , 62, will be sentenced Thursday at 1:30pm in Kent County Circuit Court. Piranian pleaded guilty in October to second-degree murder and assault with intent to do great bodily harm.

      Piranian set a Kent County home on fire in March. Kori VanHulle, 24, was trapped inside.

      VanHulle had recently moved to Kent County from Kingsley.
