Woman Who Set Neighbors' Homes on Fire Gets 4 Years In Prison

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) - A Youngstown woman who set her neighbors' homes on fire because she was angry at their loud music has been sentenced to four years in prison.

The attorney for 50-year-old Johanna Morrison says she has mental health problems and didn't understand the implications of what she did.

Fire investigators say Morrison is responsible for as many as 13 fires in her neighborhood from April 2006 until she was arrested last October.

No one was injured but some of the homes were damaged so severely that they had to be abandoned.

In court, Morrison apologized for setting fires. She says she's been taking antidepressants and her mental health has improved.

In June, Morrison pleaded guilty to arson. A judge had found her competent to stand trial.
