A Superior woman has been sentenced to 7 years in prison for helping set her ex-husbands house on fire.

Amy Pionk was charged last April with being party to the crime of arson after helping her boyfriend send Molotov cocktails into her ex-husband's basement.

The fire caused $20,000 in damage and police say the fire stemmed from a child custody dispute.

The court also ordered Pionk 8 years of extended supervision.
