Box Elder man who torched his home seeks insanity ruling

  BOX ELDER, S.D. (AP) - Two psychiatrists have agreed that a Box Elder man who torched his mobile home was insane at the time. 
     The attorney for 29-year-old Joseph Hodges told Circuit Judge Janine Kern on Monday that the report from the state Human Services Center will confirm that his client was insane when he lit the fire that destroyed his home in October.
     Kern scheduled another status hearing for Hodges on June 10.
