What was Eduard Delacroix's crime?

Green mile. They make him a likeable character in the movie but what landed him on the mile? Sick bastard Phone Post 3.0

"He is incarcerated for multiple deaths due to a fire he started while trying to cover up his rape and murder of a young girl."

What a bastard. I'm glad that prick co stomped his mouse. Phone Post 3.0

so are you saying he wouldn't have been incarcerated if the fire didn't kill people?
