LEWISBURG, W.Va. (AP) -- Greenbrier County's prosecutor is seeking a life sentence for a man convicted of torching several vehicles at a West Virginia State Police barracks.

Prosecutor Patrick Via says in a court filing that 48-year-old David Clayton White of Meadow Bridge has two prior felony convictions.

West Virginia's recividism law allows prosecutors to seek a sentence enhancement against people convicted of repeated felonies.

The Register-Herald reports that a hearing is scheduled Wednesday in Greenbrier County Circuit Court to determine whether White is a recividist.

White is one of five people charged following the 2011 fires at the State Police's Rainelle detachment. The fires destroyed two State Police vehicles and several others that had been seized.

White was convicted on arson, retaliation and conspiracy charges in February.
