COURTLAND—A Capron woman will spend three years behind bars for setting some curtains on fire during a fight with her boyfriend.

Tracy Warren Parham, 47, also was ordered to pay $130,513 in restitution for damage to the home.

Parham was sentenced on an arson charge in Southampton County Circuit Court last week.

Parham also must pay $420 in court costs.
