Woman gets five years in prison for setting fire


ATWOOD, Ill. (WCIA) — A Douglas County woman was sentenced to five years behind bars for setting fire to the home she was living in.

35 year-old Christina Harris pled guilty to arson.

She admitted to it because she was served with divorce papers from her husband.

It happened last August.

The house was destroyed.

Harris will have to pay restitution for the damage.
