One Colorado man is now facing the consequences of a crime that he committed as a teen after he sought revenge for a stolen iPhone.

Bui, who was 16 at the time of the act, was described as the ringleader among three friends who came up with the plot to burn down the home of a Senegalese family inside. Three adults, aged 23, 25, and 29, died at the scene of the fire, along with two children, a 22-month-old and a 6-month-old baby girl. Three people managed to escape with broken bones after jumping from the second floor of the home in the middle of the night.

Thanks to video surveillance, police identified Bui and two friends, who were seen setting fire to the home while wearing dark hoodies and full face masks.

What’s more, Bui and his friends became direct suspects in the case after police obtained a search warrant from Google to investigate the IP addresses responsible for searching the home’s address within 15 days of the fire. The teens were then arrested roughly five months afterward.

He is scheduled to be sentenced July 2.
