Man will serve no more time in jail for fire that killed 5-month-old baby A Edmonton man who started a house fire that killed a five-month-old baby was sentenced Thursday to 76 days in jail. But Bronson Woycenko, 20, will not serve any more jail time, after time spent in remand was taken into account. Woycenko pleaded guilty to charges of arson and mischief in connection with a fire on Aug. 22, 2017, at 1040 Armitage Cres. SW that killed Hunter Brown. Several people were in the home at the time. The baby's mother, Angie Tang, sought refuge with her child in a bedroom closet while black smoke overwhelmed the two-storey home and flames jumped from the front porch to the roof.
