CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A teenager who pleaded guilty to setting a December fire that destroyed a Clendenin business has been sentenced to five years in prison.

U-S District Judge Joseph R- Goodwin also ordered 18-year-old Tiara Spencer to pay more than $600,000 in restitution.

The Clendenin woman had admitted in April in federal court in Charleston that she set the fire at the Dollar General Store, which burned to the ground.

Spencer pleaded guilty to a one-count information charging her with maliciously destroying by fire a building used in interstate commerce.
