WinnipegFreePress.com – By: Mike McIntyre

A deadly fire at a Winnipeg bathhouse was alleged started by a customer who was angry to learn he’d had a sexual tryst with a man he thought was actually a woman, the Free Press has learned.

Two people died in the Oct. 11 blaze at the Aquarius Men’s Bath while nearly 40 other patrons were able to escape.

Justin Rosdobutko, 25, has been charged with two counts of manslaughter. He remains before the courts and is presumed innocent. His lawyer said this week he plans to vigorously fight the charges.
