A suburban Philadelphia woman is heading to prison for burning down her neighbor's home because she blamed the detective who lived there for her son's legal troubles.
Fifty-three-year-old Donna Krupp was sentenced on Thursday to 10 to 20 years behind bars for setting fire to Ernie Morris' home in December 2014. A jury convicted the woman of arson and other charges in November.
Morris is a Limerick Township police detective.

He testified their relationship turned sour after he tried to help Krupp's troubled son.

The fire destroyed the Morris' home while they were on vacation and killed their 18-year-old cat.
