From the Detroit Free Press:

The MLive article said security camera video showed Joly filling a gas can before the fire, gasoline was on his clothing, a witness smelled gas on him, photographs seemed to be missing from the walls, and after the fire, Joly received $50,000 in donations.

Joly’s attorney, Andrew Abood, challenged the police conclusion.

“What they have is a coincidence and a coincidence is not proof beyond reasonable doubt,” MLive quoted Abood saying. “They are trying to convict on circumstantial evidence and theory when they have no direct evidence in the case.”

Good luck with that defense.
