CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- A Logan County man has been sentenced to 6 ½ years in federal prison for burning his duplex to collect insurance money.

U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin says 58-year-old Michael L. White of Chapmanville was sentenced Thursday. White had been convicted of conspiracy to commit arson, arson and accessory after the fact.

According to prosecutors, White conspired with Kimberly Dawn Kinder and her now-deceased husband to set fire to a rental unit he owned in Boone County. Evidence showed that after the October 2009 fire, White collected more than $80,000 in insurance claims and paid the Kinders about $2,000.

Kimberly Kinder, also from Chapmanville, pleaded guilty to her role in the conspiracy and was sentenced in June to three years and one month in prison.
