AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) -- Roland Croyle, who stands accused of ramming his car into the former Twin Peaks location on Robert C. Daniel Parkway and setting the building on fire, will finally go to trial for the 2017 incident.

A judge set the trial for Sept. 23, 2019 on Wednesday.

Croyle initially entered a plea of not guilty at a hearing in October 2017.

He faces two arson charges, 21 aggravated assault charges, and one charge of criminal damage to property.

Croyle, deputies said in the beginning of the investigation, was on a mission to kill and die himself when he the building on fire.

"When he was doing it, throwing propane tanks in there and everything, he looked nonchalant," said Bartender Tyler DiLorenzo.

Workers say Croyle, a former Twin Peaks busboy, was making good on a promise.

"When he was fired a year ago, one of the girls said he said he would come back and blow the place up," said DiLorenzo.
